How to clean up Facebook updates in iOS 6 Contacts

BTW, can anyone tell me how to make FB sound notifications work? I've turned it on in the settings but they don't make any sound alert upon arriving.

Also, I bet I'm not the only one in this camp: Many of my contacts have changed their phone number since signing up…sent a few txts and made calls to bunk numbers before I put two and two together.

The whole idea is bogus. Why can't I set the preference BEFORE I sync? I do not trust FB so I would be paranoid to let it "sync" my contacts with FB.
I do want to keep my private and professional lives separate so I only need and option to post to FB.

That means that if you turn off the syncing as shown above, all those contacts it added won't show up any more and you won't have to go delete them manually or anything. It also means that contacts "added" by Facebook won't be synced via iCloud to your other devices, unless you turn on Facebook contact syncing on those devices too.
The only time the Facebook integration actually does anything to your local contacts is when you actually hit the "Update" button yourself.

That will subscribe you to the Facebook contact group (which will show those contacts in the list and other places) but won't make any changes to your local contacts, like photo or Facebook profile or anything. If you later turned off the Contact switch and never hit the update button, everything would be exactly as it was before.
