Bug Description

On the ubuntu-touch images, after creating twitter and facebook accounts with UOA, eds addressbooks are automatically created for these services. The automatic creation should be disabled by default, otherwise all your facebook and twitter friends show up in the address-book-app and it's not clear where they came from and typically they have no useful information other than a name.

In the future there will probably be settings in the UOA (or somewhere) to enable address book integration for these services but until then we should shut it off.
