    Default facebook notifications not appearing...help?

    Hey everyone I have a question about the facebook notifications for the Atrix.The phone notifies me that I recieve E-mail and text messages fine.It also sounds when I get messages on facebook chat, but it doesnt notify me when someone posts on my wall or comments on my status.
    Is there a way to set it up so that it notifies me when this happens?Im sure there is something I may have missed since my old BBerry used to notify me about that.
    I have the facebook App installed but cant find where to set it to have new comments appear on my notification bar.can anyone help?

    Go to the main screen on Facebook app, press the settings button(far left button on the bottom of your screen), press settings, and that brings you where you can set up notifications for that app.

    I know hoe to get there.I have noticed that alot of people who got the new facebook app also have this issue with push notifications not showing up.Even though they are set up right they dont show up.I'm guessing a fix for that isnt out yet.I went and cleared the caches and all but still same thing.

    Just swapped out the Xoom Tablet for an IPhone. I never ever thought I would get an IPhone. Im currently eating my words. Apple has a lot going on here....Im loving both platforms.

    Just wanted to add that I am having the same problem. I have the notifications turned on but they just don't seem to be coming through. I wasn't sure if it was bc I was also using the motorblur widget and somehow it was complicating things

    Facebook for Android app hasn't worked good at all since day one. I wonder when Facebook is going to address this issue?

    I never have luck with the Facebook application. Most times it comes up with no posts.

    I've been getting random alerts here and there lately. Friend requests and event invites have been coming through without a problem seemingly, but today I was getting a notification when I was poked, and a BLUE light? When I opened the facebook app though, there was no notification about being poked.

    I've started getting Facebook notifications as of this evening. Phone would vibrate like an SMS came in and in the notification bar there is a Facebook icon.

    Maybe that's a promising start. Not going to hold my breath on it, though.

    Interestingly, I did receive a notification this morning of someone responding to a post I made. Perhaps things are starting to look up...

    They definitely seem to be coming through consistently. For now, anyway.

    For those who are still having facebook notification issues. You get around that issue by using tweetdeck or seesmic or any apps that has facebook support.
