    Hey,

    I own a iPod Touch, and my friends and I have the facebook app. I noticed that my facebook app doesn't have a notification badge, while my friends have it. Is that badge only for the iPhone or something?

    Thanks for your help!

    the current version of the FaceBook app does not support notifications yet. I'm not sure what app your friend is using.

    It doesn't support push notifications. If you have friend requests, open the app and don't do something with them (confirm/ignore) and close the app...you will have a notification badge.

    @shutter exactly!! Mine doesn't do that. There is no badge saying how many friend requests or new wall posts for example. Is that just the iPod Touch or what?

    The badge number only represents the number of unread private messages you have. As others have stated it only updates when you close the app.

    If you open up your Facebook app, and say you have an unread message on there, and then you close the app without reading the message(s), on your home screen the Facebook app icon would have a badge or number above it indicating that you have unread message. It's doesnt support push yet.. it's may though in the near future.

    Yes guys, the problem is after I close the app with unread messages or notifications, the badge still doesn't show up.

    On mine if you are on News Feeds, below that it says Top Stories and there is other options such as Photos and Live Feed and others, almost all of the other options say No New Stories -got a lot of friends that have it and all of the stuff works on theirs. Is there a setting I'm missing or what? I can't do chat or anything else - kind of irritates me. Any help would be appreciated.

    Very strange app issues for me today. Sometimes won't open up at all, then when it does I can use as normal for a short time before getting a white screen and being kicked out to homescreen. After this I have to re-enter my password.

    Anyone else seeing this? Have tried uninstall/reinstall to no avail

    I'm sure it will be fixed for you sooner rather than later. I just tested mine again and all is well.
