For the last week or so, when Lightroom attempts to update photos in my Facebook albums, I receive an error that reads "Deletion of the photo on Facebook was unsuccessful. Please check the status of the photo on Facebook via your browser." and I end up with duplicates in my Facebook album. Has something changed in either Facebook or Lightroom recently to cause this to start happening?

This is a known issue. Facebook has changed an API and we're looking into it:

Error "Deletion of the photo...unsuccessful" | Delete Facebook photo | Lightroom 3
