    i was getting push notifications (minus sound/vibrate of course) up until this morning....now i am ONLY getting them for new messages...ridiculous. Contact sync seems to be 100% on my end. What really chaps my arse about this whole deal is that this has been in testing at facebook for a LONG time (this was suppost to be a part of the 3.0 build). I have turned all my email notifications off so now i am in the dark when new notifications come in (granted i could turn them back on but i would rather this WORK). this is a BASIC function that should have been perfected by now...its infuriating. Does anyone have any idea when a patch or new update will be available?

    It's not possible to perfect anything and coming close is even harder as FB would need the same amount of testers as there are users that use FB. Basically, we beta test each build and they improve upon them.

    i totally agree with what you are saying but the fundamental core of this update was broken from the get-go...it never worked. Including sound/vibrate command into the code of the app is basic...it should already be there. I totally understand the inconsistent nature of the contact sync..that obviously requires some trial and error...but for a notification to ding or vibrate should require no beta testing whatsoever.

    I understand the issues with syncing... but problems with push notifications this bad?

    Seriously, no sounds or vibrate. When you "Slide to view" it doesn't take you to the post. That's not rocket science, it's what EVERYONE has been doing with their apps for as long as push notifications have been available.

    I still haven't received one PN from it, doesn't work at all, was this like an early April fools joke or something?

    But anyways, for those of you who really want them, there's a great app called "Let Me Know" that let's you subscribe to different push notifications including Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc. And you can even customize the sounds. I had mine set to give me Facebook notifications but changed it as soon as the FB update came out, looks like I'll have to change it back now.

    I'm not getting any push notifications at all. It sucks, but then again it's been this long without them, so what's a little longer until they fix it? Also, I've never really had any apps that used push, so when I did get push for a brief period of time, I came to realize how notifications suck on the iPhone. Now I know what everyone was talking about, and I hope that the next iPhone OS update handles notifications better.

    This is no excuse to have such a pathetic update such as this. No excuse. A single beta tester would have seen these issues.

    i havent gotten anything in 2 days now. When the update first came out It was working great. I guess that's what I get for deciding to turn off all email notifications after this update. I miss Joe Hewitt

    I don't think I was receiving them consistently yesterday but I am seeing the badge update today. The sucky part is that they shipped 3.1 and 3.1.1 with NO SOUND RESOURCE. So if all you did was turn on sound notification you'll get nothing. So I have sound + badge and see the badge update -- pop-ups would get way to annoying.

    So I hope they're working on fixing the sound problem at least. :-( Of course there's no real way to provide feedback to them so who knows what the heck they're doing.

    i have posted several complaints in the app store and i have been lighting up their facebook page...along with MANY others...i am pretty sure they are getting the message that they totally f'd up.

    All kinds of action of Facebook today, yet not one sound, alert, vibe, or badge.

    Even the little devs seem to have no problem getting push working..

    Tons of FB activity in the last few days but since I have only received 1 push notification. Furthermore, it seems that since Friday night, Facebook is blocking all push notifications I should be getting from all apps. I spent ages trying to figure out what it was and I kept reinstalling FB and resetting my network settings and even reinstalling a lot of the other apps that weren't sending me push anymore. Finally I discovered that once I removed Facebook completely and didn't reinstall it, push worked again. I put Facebook back, no push. Took it away again...I've gone through this routine four times now, and it's always the same. With Facebook on my phone I get no push from any application, which is absurd. Now I can't even have the Facebook app, let alone FB push.

    I think they have two developers now instead of one.

    and I would say the bigger a company is the harder push is.
    I mean, google added it for their email after I got it working where I work and i never had before

    It is now only showing me about half of the updates and such in the news feed. Getting worse.

    I've started to see some in-app weirdness now too. Aside from the near non-existent pushI only get an alert,no badge (or sound obviously),and only for inbox messagesdespite all options being turned on. I've now started to see that my posts get mixed into the newsfeed in a completely random order,out of time,and some other posts seem to now appear/disappear/reappear each time I visit.

    Add me to the list of people not getting push notifications. Other apps are working okay as far as I know though. Words with friends seems to be working fine a couple of days ago and I got a message from TapTap for the latest download.

    I've also noticed a new post I made went second into the list. I was scrolled so that the first entry was off the visible screen which could have been why. A quick press of refresh and all was re-ordered though. I had another one where I tapped on comments and none were showing despite it telling me there was some. I closed the app then re-opened again and all was well with that too.
