My bro got his new droid last week. He hasn't recieved any notifications since the first day he got the device. Does he have to make his facebook E-mail match his G-mail account for the droid (like you need to for the black berry)? Or is there another issue?

you guys should use touch.facebook.com until the new app come out. I hope the iPhone facebook guy that left developing for them develops for android

I saw this on crackberry. Can anyone tell me if it works for getting your notifications up and running?

Go to fb from a computer, go into notifications and make sure FB for Android is checked.

@Magnious and fpdsniper, I don't seem to see the "Android" option in the Notifications area on Facebook. Can anyone elaborate as to where this is?

At the very bottom there is a link to "show more" applications. It's there.

I checked it, and I'm still not getting notifications, so take it for what it's worth.

Ah yes, I see it now, thanks! Although I will note, I just switched from a BlackBerry Storm and I do not have "Facebook for Blackberry" checked yet I was still receiving FB notifications through the app. So chances are it's an app issue more than anything.

i am pretty sure checking that will just email you if the facebook for android application sends you a notification of some kind. (ie a program update, news, etc)

I just turned on text notifications and checked the android box on my facebook apps page and I got a notification. I'll let you know if I keep getting notifications or miss any.

yea, that's just going to email you if there are any changes to the facebook for android app.

also -- my email in facebook has always been my gmail addy, and i'm not getting any facebook notifications in my status bar.

I went into mobile and see at the bottom several boxes to check for what can send you texts. The options are mobile, iphone android and bb. I unchecked all but android and mobile, saved and went back and they were all checked again.
