    I'm having trouble recieving notifications on my phone, I have to go to the actual mobile site to see If I have notifications. The only time it will give me real notification is when I get a Friend Request, Nothing else.

    I have the first Droid to by the way, Anybody else experience problems like this?

    The official FB app; well, let's just say there's a lot of room for improvement. You are not alone.

    It seems to be temperamental - sometimes you get notfications other times you don't. In my case, it's mre often I don't, & the only reason I know I have something new to look at on Facebook is because I get the email notifications.

    I have those issue too. I used to use bloo for notifications, but lately i'm having issue withthe stock ap erroring out when bloo is installed. I'm not sure its related yet, but I think it might be.

    Are your facebook settings enabled to receive notifications?

    I have mine set up so I get an email through gmail for any notifications or requests. Often that is faster than the facebook app. Definitely not a perfect setup, but it works for me.

    What email are you using? Before I got the droid I used yahoo, but with the droid I switched my email with facebook to gmail because it notifies instantly when I get an email unlike yahoo which is checked periodically. I think you can set it up to send a text message for notifications instead of email.

    ?? You don't have to put your phone number in your FB profile. I don't do the text notification thing, but I don't see why it would make a difference.
