    I'm sorry I'm clogging up the forums but still new to iPhone. Does the facebook app have "push notifications" as it were. This is what I saw. Some people posted commented etc on posts but the actual notification never really beeped on my phone till hours later. What am I doing wrong?

    I think thats just the FB app sucking at life. Mine is the same way. Sometimes it works well but not often.

    That's actually normal. The push notifications for Facebook aren't immediate normally. Don't worry about clogging up the forums, that's why they are here

    Did a forum search and found a possible answer. I am trying an app called boxcar that promises push notifications. We will see...

    you can get notification set via text too, sucks if you have a limited text plan though.

    Yeah, sometimes I get a notification within 5 minutes, other times, I don't get a notification until I go into the app. It's terrible, this is the only app I have push problems with.

    Sometimes my FB notification makes a sound, most times it does'nt. I agree with the other post, I just think its the FB app having some bugs in it.

    If you don't mind paying $4.99 for an app, I found a solution that makes my FB notifications instant and reliable using PushMail. Just set up your FB notifications to go through email and send them to your pushmail address. From within the pushmail app, you can set what happens when you open the notification (it can take you straight to the FB app notifications screen using URL schemes when you open from the alert/notification).

    I posted this a couple weeks ago, works like a charm. I never miss a FB notification.

    My gripe with the FB app is FB chat. I don't understand why and how the chat will sometimes group all my on-line friends together and other times separate them by last names. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, has anyone found a way to keep the on-line friends consistent?

    Thanks.

    That's based on how many friends you have online. For example if you only have 10 friends online they will group then together to save space, I would think.

    I don't even use the FB chat on the app. It seems to log me out of chat whenever I leave the app.

    I think they need to update the app and fix this bug. I have been noticing this. I have had my iphone for only a week, and came from Blackberry. Notifications were great with BB.
