Facebook integration on my Ancestry tree

Now that there's an option to link your Facebook account with your Ancestry account, it's much easier to keep track of family members and the FB profiles, which helps other people you share you tree with to find them as well.

One thing I'm having trouble with is that the import/link doesn't seem to be complete. Many family members of mine showed up just find and allowed me to link them, but some are not and there doesn't seem to be a way to manually add them. Has anybody else seen issues with not everyone from your FB friends list showing up on Ancestry?

What I'm ultimately looking for is the ability to go into someone's entry on my Ancestry tree and manually provide the person's Facebook URL in order to link them. Until now I've just been adding it as a link in the bottom right corner, as a website "fact", but this integration is much smoother and has the added benefit of a direct FB link at the top of their page.

Any input would be appreciated. :)
