Not getting facebook notifications
I did a search and didn't find anything, so forgive me if this has already been asked. I rarely ever get notifications from facebook, and if I do it's usually hours later. I do have push enabled, but is there any way to remedy this?

the facebook app may be the worst app ever. Its not uncommon to not get notifications but I have noticed that I usually get them more frequent when I leave the app running in the background

I have the same issue a lot of times. I also have noticed that if someone sends me a private message on FB, when I tap the message icon, FB just flashes off and takes me back to the homescreen and I have to go back in and try to load the message again. This happens every time without fail and it drives me crazy.

Facebook notifications are flakey at best. I route all my notifications (FB, Twitter, Email, etc) through Boxcar. Decent app & seem to get all notifications almost instantly - including FB!! There's a free version of the app with the option to pay & remove ads once downloaded - I've never bothered though as the ad banners in the app are minimal.

It's always been hit or miss with notifications for that app. As already said, I just use e-mail for my
notifications. Gmail account on Exchange. I don't think the app is as bad as some make it out to be.
But that's all subjective. I do know for sure that once the app was updated to use the HTML5 format
in the news feed like the mobile version, the app really did suck on the Verizon firmware 4.2.6 and 4.2.7
I got a lot of "No internet connection" crap. But since then I've switched back to AT&T (for other reasons).
I'm not getting the same problems on 4.2.x that I've been on.
