    And if you do, does your push notifications still work? I am using iOS 5 b7 and my push notifications have stopped working with FB Messenger. This is a big deal for me because I basically use FB Messenger to text when at work since I don't get any signal in my office, only WiFi. Thanks. I would gladly take any tips on how to fix this too. I have checked all of my setting twice, and notifications are turned on.

    I use it on ios 5 B7 and never had a problem with it. I get my notifications still.
    Maybe try deleting the app then reinstalling it

    Works for me. I did notice that it stops pushing to the iPhone if you are online with the desktop messaging part of Facebook.

    That's a good question.

    And the few times I used it I have not had issues with the notifications.

    For me, the main reason I use it is because there are a lot of people that don't have my phone number. People from work, people that I went to high school/college with, etc.

    It's basically a text message client that people don't need your phone number for.

    Oh, and it works internationally.

    I think he meant why use that over the chat in the Facebook app itself.

    In that case, it's because the Facebook app is incredibly slow and clunky, where the Messenger app is sleek and fast (and includes more features to the best of my knowledge).

    Latest update for facebook app is terrible.. But most of the time i'm at home and I find it annoying being alerted twice about facebook msgs, so i mostly don't use the messenger app.

    Do you know if this is intentional? Because the only thing that's stopping me getting the app at the moment is the fact that I don't want to keep getting notifications on my phone when I'm chatting to someone on my computer.

    I've noticed the same, so I'm guessing that Facebook recognizes when you're on the site and will stop pushing to your phone, similar to how they stop pushing notifications to the Facebook app when you have Messenger.

    I seem to be having notification problems in general with IOS5 ... Just depends on my signal strength, much more sensitive than iOS 4 ...
