    I have the facebook app to refresh every 30 minutes, however, I woke up this morning with 4 notifications on facebook AFTER i pulled up the app and logged in and checked manually. they were all there since 8 hours ago, but the droid didnt notify me... What could be wrong?

    I've looked around but there's too many people holding full conversations on the topic and not giving a solution

    I have tried all FB apps and none work on driod like they did on Storm. Still rather have Droid by far, but to answer your questions, they do not work, at all.

    I agree, i still love it by far more than the iPhone. i sold my iPhone and got my verizon droid in less than an hour. I was excited as hell yesterday, xD.

    Right now I do not know, I am getting the same types of notifications as you are. Waiting for the developers to do their thing. I am a bit impatient because I lived the same type of issues with Storm (minus Facebook app), so hoping more people start to build stuff or Google starts to invest in their new platform. I get how long it took IPhone to have certain apps or plug-ins, but you would have thought RIM and Google who have learned from their mistakes or start up issues and thought ahead, like the email exchange issue.

    OK! I thought I was the only one having this issue. I hope a solution is made because this phone is BA and as much as I'm concerned, no Facebook notifications is the only issue I have. :)

    Mine works better now. I had two emails on the account and it had me logged in under the one on which I didn't get Facebook notifications. I deleted that email off my Facebook account and logged out and back in on my phone. If you have more than one email you should try that.

    How about those of us that have only one e-mail account linked to their Facebook account?

    Just about to take the phone back to Verizon. This "cannot retrieve the notifications. please try again later.[601/parser error:unexpected '-' at position 57.]" error is BS.

    In the original app, just hit notifications, then the menu button, then refresh. Sure, you only get the notifications when you open the app..but who wants bugged every 5 min anyhow. :)

    The app only sends notifications for certain things like pokes, friend requests, and like two other things I believe.

    I get that error alot..right when i get that.. i just use the web mobile version of facebook. i seem to be constantly going back and forth between the app and the website to get to what i want. both versions have their flaws and pros..

    the only notification i get is when i get "POKED" by someone.. other than that i am just having to check for my self every 30 mins to and hr.. if i am waiting for something.

    hope facebook comes up with solutions soon. or droid.. whoever fault it is.

    You're not the only one. Everyone is affected by that from what it seems. It's been down for the day and on the Facebook for Android page on FB, a lot of people were reporting that as an issue. Some speculate it's got to do with the new FB update for the iPhone that's causing the error. Our phones are OK, it's FB that is causing the issue.

    Ummm, guess you don't have the bug yet. Lots of Droid users are getting the parser error and the notifications do not download.
