    Hi, I have recently had a new icon appear in my notification bar. When I view the notification there is not anything there pending, however it won't go and I don't know what it means.

    It is a little world icon that looks a little transparent. It is in the top left corner.

    Does anybody know? Extensive Google searches have not helped very much.

    I have the Samsung Galaxy S3, and am on Android version 4.1.2.

    Many thanks,

    Its got to do with your Facebook notification status. If you log out of Facebook the icon goes away..

    You dont need to log out of facebook, just go into facebook settings and turn off 'on-going notifications'. That solved the problem for me.

    It always been under menu button->settings->advanced settings, and check box by "ongoing notifications", but it seems that devs deleted that feature somehow in latest update of facebook app. (v. 3.8, same in 3.9 beta version), it so sad...
