    I would just check it a couple times a day. And send a report to Facebook often about it.
    Thanks for the info from earlier. That's for email notifications, though. I can get those to work. But there's nowhere for granular controls of the mobile notifications. There used to be, but it's been removed for some reason.

    Yeah, I recall that now. Odd.

    Yeah, it is definitely strange. And I came from Android and the Facebook Android app still gives the more granular controls of their notifications - where you can choose specifically what kind of notifications you want just on your phone. The iOS app has removed that for some reason. It's like something got stuck somewhere in the Matrix and doesn't alert me of friend requests. I tried the Friendly app, too, and it still doesn't alert me of friend requests. It's weird.

    I don't think it's the app. If it were, you could do it in Safari or in the Friendly+ client. It has to be in the account itself.

    Yeah. I think they somehow turned it off on me. I dunno. Always worked on my Android phones because I could specifically turn it on. I hope they just bring that back to the iOS app.

    It's sad their customer service is so horrible. It's like no support at all.

    It's nonexistent. You can report something but there is absolutely no one to talk to when there's an issue.

    Are the notifications set up in the Facebook Settings, as well as in the phone's Settings?

    Yes, all settings are the same. Push notifications have been working for a few months now. They just stopped yesterday. I can only assume a problem on facebook's end, but they work on my iPad?

    I only have Facebook notifications set to show in my pull down notification center. I don't like a lot of notifications. It becomes too annoying. I usually check Facebook a few times each day. I can see the notifications then. But mine do show in the Notification Center. It's possible Facebook lost permissions for notifications. Try this:

    1. Delete the Facebook app.
    2. Do a hard reset.
    Hold the top or side power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release.
    3. Go to settings and set date and time ahead a day
    4. Turn the device off again et turn it back
    5. Install Facebook again and It'll ask for notification permission like the first time you installed It.
    *Reset time and date.
    This will reset the notification settings.

    Thanks for the assistance, but they've just started working again. Must've been an issue on Facebook's servers? 😞
