    Hi everyone,

    It seems that my push notifications for Sense's Facebook app aren't working. I understand that push notifications for Facebook have been an issue for a long time, but I don't know if the way to fix it (if there is one!) is different for what is technically a different version of the app.

    I used to have an iPhone and having now switched to Android, I'm not quite as familiar with the interface and settings, so I need a little help. I've setup the phone and have sync'd Facebook with the phone in Accounts&Sync (apart from photos and contacts- still deciding). I've accepted the request for HTC Sense to access Facebook and that didn't seem to be an issue as is has been with some people.

    I've been onto the Facebook app settings and notifications for everything are switched on. However, it is only when I go into the app itself that I am shown my notifications! Any ideas on how to fix this would be much appreciated.

    I've also noticed that when I go into the Facebook app settings and select a notification ringtone, the writing underneath doesn't change to the name of the sound I've chosen - as it does with the rest of the phone - not sure if this is normal or part of the issue either?

    Many Thanks

    Did you ever figure out what the issue was with Facebook?

    Hi

    The problem was basically just my own stupidity and unfamiliarity with Android and the Sense version of Facebook.

    Having previously been an iPhone user, I was used to getting push notifications for everything on Facebook (wall posts, comments, tags, requests, likes - the lot). So all I saw was that all the notification boxes were ticked and expected the same level of notification.

    Now, having looked properly at what the Sense version of Facebook notifies the user for, I have realised that I am indeed being notified properly for those few options, and that any other small notifications will only show up once the app is opened. I think I was also expecting a count badge, which I have now found out is not so much of a thing on Android.

    Can't complain really, there were so many other things I couldn't do on my iPhone that I can now do on my shiny new HTC - a few little notifications aren't going to be missed!

    If it helps, having less notifications will probably make your battery last longer

    Some people hate them, but I've always loved iOS notification badges.
