    Okay, I wasn't gonna notice it, if a friend didn't point this out. I'm missing the friend request button that's on the home page. I can't see the friend requests I have. And for some reason they are present in the norification bar. How to fix this?

    Hello,

    I have "almost the same problem". I'm missing the friend request icon. Only i'm on IPhone (IOS).

    I don't think though it's an update. Here is why.

    I have the app installed on my iPhone and iPad. On my iPad, it works fine.

    To see if it was just me, i made a second account on my phone and on the second account no problem. So i asked a friend to log in with his Facebook account on my phone and when he logged in, the icon is there. I logged back in to my own account and the icon was gone.

    Another thing i tried was to log in to my Facebook account on his phone and same thing: When i logged in to his phone, no icon. He logs in there is an icon!!!

    I have been looking on the internet how to solve this problem.. Facebook gives no answer at all. Yours were one of the few messages i found about this problem and i looked hoping that you had found an answer. Hopefully i could use it to fix my own problem.

    Thanks,
    Erick

    Hello JD,

    I don't have a solution yet, but I just wanted to let you know:

    I finally got an answer from FB after posting many times about the problem we are having. This was their answer:

    We've received your report and appreciate your patience as we work to fix technical problems on Facebook. Although we can't update everyone who submits a report, we're using your feedback to improve the Facebook experience for everyone.

    To contact us non-technical issues, please visit the Help Centre


    Like I said, I had posted a few messages about this problem and I got this answer on both of them. Exact words on both. So it also makes me think it's just an automated answer.... But it is the first time I get an answer like that, so hopefully they will come with a fix very soon.

    Greetings,
    Erick

    Hi Erick.
    After reading that your friend tried logging in with your phone, I decided to try the same. My friend logged in and out 3 or 4 times. And after that I logged in into my account. And I somehow got the FRIEND REQUESTS tab. Hope this helps.

    Hello JD,

    Thanks for your reply....

    Well, somehow this morning when I logged in to my app, I had the icon back!!!! I didn't do anything at all. It just appeared.

    The only thing i'm thinking is that there was an Facebook app update yesterday, which I downloaded hoping it would solve the problem. But needless to say, the icon was still missing, so I went about my day without it. This morning when I logged in, all of a sudden I got the page of my friends suggestion.. and when I looked at the bottom of the page, the icon was there!

    So maybe the update?

    Hopefully your problem is also solved.

    Greetings.

    I believe this is intentional. Facebook have now started to send friend requests through notifications. Don't how to get to the people you may know thing

    It's been two weeks already since I lost the friends request icon and last Friday there was a new update but still no icon back.

    Furthermore, my friend lost his icon last week too, but after a few days it was back again. Not mine thought.

    I hope yours is still there

    I also think it's intentional.... I have gone through my settings and compared it to those of my friend and they are exactly the same, so why is it that when I log in to my account, I don't have the icon and he does... both on my telephone and on his. So I do think it's done on purpose by facebook

    Facebook updated twice this week. Once with the friend request tab and again today without it.

    I still have the icon. And I have compared the settings to my friends too. They're exactly the same. I don't know why was I missing the icon. But another thing I noticed on my friend's phone was the bubble on the bottom right in facebook app. The bubble is used to share a new status. I don't have a bubble -.-
    Why am I missing things? Why is facebook doing this?
