Hey, I looked and looked and it seems that when it comes to the people hub the Nokia lumia 822 is very black or white. I can filter my contacts, but I can only get rid of them completely or deal with them all. There are certain people I would like to keep in my contacts list from facebook and some people I would like to get rid of. Is there any way to do this? Do I have to get rid of them all completely or am I stuck keeping them all?

Assuming WP8 carried this over (it'd be weird if they didn't), you can link profiles. For example, lets say you have Anne as a Facebook contact you want to keep. First create a contact listing for Anne on your phone > change the filters to show all your Facebook contents > link Anne's contact from your phone to Anne's Facebook info > change filters to stop showing Facebook contacts. Now you'll have Anne showing up in your contacts with her Facebook info, and no other Facebook contacts will be listed.
To link a contact, when you're looking at a contact, the link icon is the one the bottom in the middle that looks like ... Well, a link. So far, that's the only way I know you can filter Facebook contacts. Hope this helps.

I agree this is an issue to be resolved. I should be able to check those Facebook, Linkedin or other source Contacts that i don't want displayed in my Contacts list. I don't want to have to unfreind, or eliminate some people from my Facebook, Linkedin or other account just to minimize who shows up in my Contacts list.

Wanted to do the same thing. My solution go into the contact I wanted to keep and hit edit. A message says you cannot edit the actual Facebook contact but does give you the option to change info that will be displayed in the card. This step auto sets up and links a hotmail contact to the Facebook (I typically added the phone number). When all done, unselect Facebook from the filter. Not as easy as checking off the contacts but didn't take too long either.
