Hi all not sure if there is a thread about this yet I took a quick look and found nothing.

My problem is I do not get any push notification at all form face book app. For example if some one comments on your post, you'r supposed to get a notification sound to let you know that some one has commented on your status, I have yet to receive a single one since I picked up my Bionic on D day.

Does any one out there have the same problem or is any one receiving the notification alerts??

I think it's an Android thing. I only get fb notifications about every 10th time

I'd be pretty irritated with push notifications. Just check your phone every 3 hours or so and set it to txt you if you get a PM.

Did you get the email from Face Book, that they were reducing notifications by changing settings? You need the reselect the desired notifications in your profile.

Thank you I did get that email. I am talking about the actual notification right from face book, not the emails that they send out.

The blackberry idea does truly work. My wife came from a blackberry and she always got push notifications and i did not. First i deleted the application (droid) from the settings menu in my facebook account. This is a list of applications that have been given access to your facebook account. Then, i deleted the data from my facebook app and uninstalled it after. Next i removed the facebook account from my accounts on my phone. After this i did a battery pull. I went into a verizon and grabbed a blackberry. I logged into the facebook app on the blackberry and made sure someone posted to my wall in order to see the the notification pop up on the blackberry. After this, i logged out of the berry, re-added facebook to my accounts on my android and downloaded the facebook app once again. I activated all notifications in the facebook app but selected never for the option about searching for notification updates. After all of this, i have instant push notifications.

I posted above, but I still had the OG Droid. I have had the Bionic since Thursday and I have not missed a notification yet. As I was first setting the Bionic up one of the default set up routines sent me to set up the Social Networking app. (blur app?) I set up FaceBook and LinkedIn within the app. The app sucks, so I DLed the FB and In apps and set them up as normal. I did not undo any thing on the Social app. I don't know if that has anything to do with anything, but in all of my android time I have only gotten maybe 1 out of 10 FB push notifications. I don't think I have missed any FB push notification on the Bionic.
