    Is there any way to tell if you have a Facebook notification from the home screen without having to open up the app? I used to have a blackberry and it always let me know. Please help.

    That's a glitch in the Facebook app. Apparently, Facebook would rather support BlackBerry and Apple, as compared to the fastest growing mobile platform on the planet.

    I'd love something like this. I hate not knowing if someone commented after me :( Makes me have to check it on the PC

    I signed up for FB using my phone number instead of an email address, so it used to send me texts for notifications. But this seems to have stopped working sometime within the past month or so. And like you said, the FB app is no help either. Somewhat irritating.

    What if you get the notifications as emails then you can go into the app to reply?
    The app does suck. The notifications come when they want. I use the touch.facebook.com site.

    I only seem to get a notification if I get a message on Facebook, which is the flashing blue LED (I set the notification sound to silent).

    Setting up your email notification is the best your going to get for facebook notifications. It sucks but thanks to facebook it is what it is. Bloo use to be a great app for FB but the dev abandoned the app, it use to do notifications and worked really well.

    I was bummed when I read this and saw no one else was getting notifications. I recall receiving at notification on my Droid only once from Facebook. I wish there was a surefire way to see them..

    I turned the notifications off and changed the email on my fb account to my Gmail. Works great!

    I have my set up on my Droid and I get all my notifications there. I just use the app to look at status updates and upcoming events, but for everything else I check using m.Facebook.com

    It's a shame there isn't a good facebook app. I use mobile.facebook.com & f-plus :/.

    The Facebook for Android client supports notifications for friend requests, event invites, and facebook messages. It doesn't notify you if someone replies to a status, or anything like that.

    Have you had it notify you of replies to your posts or anything? I can't seem to get it to work yet.

    Its apperantly just for messages & such. Makes no sense to me why they don't make it for all notifications.

    It does work, but like selectively. It sends you a message on your notification bar whether someone had commented on your status, a status you replied in, whether you got a new message or friend request. So far, it works randomly. The last time I had them was when I had the iPhone and they worked PERFECTLY. It would be as if Facebook text messaged you.

    Obviously there isn't any settings to adjust for notifications since its now a push system. Am I missing something? I installed the update and have used the chat, it works decent but as for notifications im getting nothing. Any suggestions?

    I get a text when someone comments on my status or sends me a message. I get an e-mail when someone replies to one of my comments. Seems to work pretty well. I really don't like the notifications on the Facebook app itself. Tells me I have something like 35 unread messages and 20 unread event invites.
