I was wondering if anyone knows if the 2011 ecoboost engines require 100% synthetic oil because when I bought it they said that is what the car came with from the factory

My understanding is that the Ecoboost engine is a blend, part synthetic and part dino oil. I switched to full synthetic at 7500 miles and since.

I use full synthetic in mine, and I don't have the eco boost...Ford dealer said it's never a bad idea to go full synthetic, and said the newer hybrid is not nearly as good.

I was told that going to fully syn after a car has only had part syn was bad for the seals...?

The 2010 owners guide lists Motorcraft 5W-20 Premium

Synthetic Blend and Motorcraft 5W-20 Full Synthetic. I've been running full synthetic for over 130K and have had no leaks so far.

Changed to Amsoil signature blend. using the Amsoil filter as well. Not pushing any one particular brand of full synthetic. From what I've read Amsoil "blends" with any oil as in when changing over to it from a dino or synthetic blend oil.  Not experienced any oil seal problems with any of the other equipment that I use it in  either.
