Facebook support officially confirmed this change and a number of websites and forums have also confirmed the removal.
Facebook stated, "Unfortunately, this feature is no longer available.
If you would like to provide feedback to the product team about this, please visit our Help Center." There have been many suggestions about workarounds, such as installing older versions of the Facebook app, but in the end it looks like all methods eventually fail and Facebook contact sync can no longer be used.
