    Bottom line is the app is still not right. Not working 100% the way it should. Why release an update to not include something so obvious as a notification sound when it actually does push. I'm guessing that is not the app rather their garbage servers.

    Just a thought, and by no means advocating this update being released in it's current state, but do you think they may've needed to do it this way so as to 'get a feel' for the sheer numbers of people using it and therefore the requisite server power?!
    As I said I'm not excusing how bad this is, just entered my mind the other day that they may've needed a volume of 'testers' that could only be reached with a general release?!

    You don't think they already didn't know how popular the app has been? It's been out for a long time and they know how many people have downloaded it. Sorry, that's no excuse.

    definitely no excuse.

    I blame new developers which is an internal problem, not one that customers should have to deal with

    Yeah, as I said, I'm not excusing them.....
    I'm in no doubt whatsoever they know exactly how many people are using it, and how, and when, and who we talk to most, and our connection to them, and our damn inside leg measurements.
    I just think that practically there's absolutely no way to test the vast number of users who'll be using it without an actual full release.

    what gets me is that this release has been out almost two weeks now and these so called 'updates' (3.1.1, 3.1.2) are USELESS. they fixed next to nothing because i am still having all the issues i had with the original 3.1 release. i mean how hard is it to write in a tone and vibrate into the applications code? all my other apps have NO problems jinngling and vibrating with push notifications. its almost as if we are being ignored, like fb simply just doesnt care.

    Notifications, without sounds seem to be steady. Now thinking about it, I don't think I'm too fussed about sounds. My iPhone is on vibrate most of time. So, vibrate would be welcomed...

    Is it just me, or are others getting use to not having sound? I think I really like the odd pop-up every now and then, and no sound...

    Peace and quite

    I'm with you Navi. I've only got badges enabled now and don't think I'd want sounds after all.
    Push definitely still has periods of off & on reliability for me though.

    i still want at least a vibrate...i get a lot of fb traffic...its more crucial to me than sms. even if we have decided that its not mandatory i would still very much like the option.

    Think about it, if you get a lot of traffic already on Facebook, and you want vibrate, that would kill the battery quicker, no?

    If you have you device on your desk or something, you're bound to see the screen light up every so often with a Facebook notification

    The facebook app sucks. The chat feature doesn't work and although when I first downloaded the app, I received notifications I now receive nothing. I truly hope they update it soon.

    Just coming over from Blackberry. There was an option in the Facebook settings to leave email messages (alerts) on the server. So obviously I unchecked that as to not have to clutter up my inbox with facebook alerts I already got on my phone.

    But seem to me the iphone version doesn't work this way?
