Thread: Facebook app

  1. #1
    Default Facebook app
    Hi, at first when i downloaded the fb app I figured it would notify me with badges whenever a new message/notification comes up, but it turned out that the app I have doent notify me at all, I have to manually go into the app and look through it myself. In other words I don't get instant notification. Some of my friends iPhones vibrates/makes a sound whenever a new thing comes in and mine doesn't. Can ne one help my out with that please.

    Thankyou in advance,
    Speedslayer88.

    hmm you could try enabling push in settings. But I'm pretty sure facebook doesn't support push and won't even support it with the 3.0 update.

    It could be that your friends might run Facebook in the background using Backgrounder. It would be sweet if FB supported Push.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    It may be the apps was not installed properly or downloaded properly. Something malfunctioning it's activity. Or you may not adjust it's settings.
    Give a look again.

    look in settings and ask your friends how they made their fb app to notice them

    FB doesn't support push, though it definitely should. Imagine being able to respond to every notification the second you get it 24/7. xD But it's missing a lot of features, like seeing notes, liking, poking, adding people to lists, going directly to a story rather than the person when clicking on a notification, etc. Somehow it's a 4 star app.

    FB dont support push notification....I guess

    I believe your friends had SMS updates running through a service from facebook. It would be like "hey listen, you got a new comment from todd"
    facebook is getting close to releasing an update to their facebook app though. i saw a preview a while back, ill try and post a link once i find it. but im pretty sure it will have push services.

    the cool thing about facebook sms updates is you can actually reply to messages and comments directly from your phone. for example if you got a message facebook would be like (lisa sent you a message: wanna grab some sushi? reply to comment

    im pretty sure this is what your friends are getting when you see them being notified

    There are currently no push notifications for Facebook. The new Facebook app has been submitted and is awaiting approval. The new version has tons of new features, but push is not one of them. They are looking to add that in the next update.

    Wow for real? well, that sucks. in the mean time i gues sms updates will have to do.

    Here's what Facebook for iPhone 3.0 looks like—pretty nice. Besides the new giant button home screen, you'll be able to actually RSVP to events and create new photo albums. No push yet, but here's the full list:

    1. The "new" News Feed
    2. Like
    3. Events (including the ability to RSVP)
    4. Notes
    5. Pages
    6. Create new photo albums
    7. Upload photos to any album
    8. Zoom into photos
    9. Easier photo tagging
    10. Profile Pictures albums
    11. A new home screen for easy access to all your stuff, search, and notifications
    12. Add your favorite profiles and pages to the home screen
    13. Better Notifications (they link to the comments so you can reply)
    14. Quickly call or text people right from the Friends page
    15. Messages you are typing will be restored if you quit or are interrupted by a phone call

    The new one looks nice. As it is the facebook is pretty watered down... only things its good for is posting or viewing status updates and looking and replying to inbox messages. Even the pic viewing is buggy at times.

    Chat is okay at times and other times i never receive messages even when they are sent to me.

    So im excited for the new facebook app to come out

    Buggy at times? Viewing the tags is just 0% okay.

    I think he's referring to the app going crazy if you rotate the phone slightly. It's very annoying
