    Why does FB for droid suck so bad? You cannot compose messages, it does not send notifications of messages received or status updates, what is up with that? I highly prefer my Droid over iPhone, but the iPhone app for Facebook is sooo much better. Does anyone know of a fix for this? any alternatives?

    I am able to compose messages with the stock Facebook app, I just tested it to make sure. I also receive notifications. You may need to un-install and then re-install it!
    You can also check out Bloo, it hasn't been updated in a little while, but it's pretty nice. I actually use both apps.
    I use the stock Facebook app if I'm just browsing through the current feed, but I use Bloo to alert me to notifications as I like the notifications interface with Bloo a *LOT* better.

    It does weird things with notifications for me too. I only get them when the phone first turns one, so Ill have none for weeks, then if I power cycle, I have a ton in my inbox. Could be a setting, I haven't really checked cause I rarely use FB.

    Yeah, the notifications in Bloo are a lot better, and don't take you to a link to the mobile web site, it's actually handled in-application. It will also let you view the links in a post, which I can't get the stock app to do, I just end up cycling between the individual post and the persons wall :)

    Funny, I use my FB app daily, but I never get, or want, notifications from it. I also have not set up a mobile device on my account.

    Guess I'm just not that addicted.
