Facebook Notifications

I've read through several posts of people who suddenly stopped recieving Facebook notifications.  I guess the answer to this problem depends upon clarifying my understanding of how the app actually works.
I used to receive all my notifications through email, but that's been off for about six months now, because it clogged up my email.  However, even with the email notifications off, on my BlackBerry Torch I've always gotten the red asterisk next to the little globe and sound notifier that show ups/sounds off when Facebook is updated or when close friends make a post.
I haven't receved any stars, dings, or notifications in the last two days, and the notifications section of FB for BB is completely empty.  BUT my news feed/home page on BB is current and updating.  The issue is that while FB for BB is updating, it's not showing notifications in the notifications sections, nor is it giving me the red star.  Now I have to constantly go into the app and check the FB news feed/home page page rather than seeing the red star next to the F on my phone's home page/desktop.
I'm not sure what would have caused this change, since it's always worked fine.  But also, not sure what the settings were, to begin with, to make it work right in the first place.  It just always worked, so if something was reset or changed accidentally, I wouldn't know what that was.
All my FB notifications were always received within the app itself - not through email or through text.  But I don't know what the settings have to be on the PC version of Facebook in order to receive them as notifications on my phone (and notifications through the app, not via text or email)??  I've checked everything I know to check, on both my phone and the PC, and I'm stumped.  :

    Hi
    Is that possible Facebook Notifications and email notifications on sleeping screen nokia 808 like it had on N9..
    On my 808 it shows only msgs and miscalls....any fix??
    Thanks

    not possible unless the app supports that behaviour. but email notifications and on notification lights has been broken on Symbian for a while, and as Symbian is in maintenance mode, is unlikely to see a fix, possibly ever.

    No, sounds like when you dropped it an cracked the screen it may have also damaged the logic board or the repair person damaged a cable.

    Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
    Let's start with the emails. What method did you configure for email? BIS, BES, Desktop Redirector?

  • Not recieving emails or facebook notifications

    I havent recieved an email or a facebook notification in days. Anyone know what to do about it?
    Jacky

    Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
    Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.
    Best!

  • Blackberry 8520 keeps repeatedly downloading the same email messages and facebook notifications

    My Blackberry 8520 has all of a sudden started downloading the same email addresses and facebook notifications, that I have already read, I tried deleting them totally and also deleted from my computer inbox, but it just downloaded the next lot in my inbox repeatedly instead.  Sometimes it says I have 50 unread messages, which is the same 7 or 8 messages over and over again, showing as unread. 
    I have rebooted device several times and don't know what else to do now, can anyone help please?
    Thanks very much

    Hi and welcome to the forums!
    Have you changed the settings for messages on your account on the providers website?
    (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.)
    If that's not it try the following:
    Go to options advanced options, Host Routing Tables, click to enter. DO NOT click on any listing.
    Press menu key, and select register now.
    You will get a verification message. Then go to email settings and send service books.
    I would suggest  logging into the carriers BIS site via PC if you can.
    You will get an email per account. Repeat the battery pull and see if the problem is
    resolved.
    Let us know how it goes!
    Thanks,

  • Not receiving e-mail and facebook notifications

    Can someone help me???  I am not receiving any e-mail or facebook notifications on my blackberry curve 8530.  I took the battery out and also ran  a Diagnostics Test that said I was connected.  When I tried to run e-mail setting it said "having trouble connecting to server".  What can I do???
    Solved!

    Hi and Welcome to the Community!
    There is an ongoing major outage...formal information is available here:
    http://www.rim.com/newsroom/service-update.shtml
    From my experience, this is affecting BIS, BES, and all services that depend on those (BBM, email, AppWorld, web browsing, application access to internet data, etc.). Troubleshooting specific problems during this outage may be pointless.
    Once the outage clears, if things are not yet flowing for you, please try these steps:
    1) Register HRT
    Homescreen > Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Table > (it does not matter which line is current) > Register Now
    2) Resend Service Books
    KB02830 Send the service books for the BlackBerry Internet Service
    3) Batt Pull Reboot
    Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.
    Hopefully that will get things going again for you!
    Cheers!

  • 1520 texting and facebook notifications

    I'm only getting my text messages once a day sometimes twice and my Facebook notifications I get tons of them at one time a day. Do I have something wrong in my settings or is it the phone?

    Hi nurseniece,
    Thank you for your post and welcome to Nokia Support Discussions!
    Is it working fine before? Did something happen to your phone prior to this issue? Have you tried to restart the phone by pressing and holding the volume and down keys for 10-15 seconds until it vibrates? You can also try to test your phone's sending and receiving capabilities by following below steps:
    1. Go to Messaging
    2. New (+) > tap 123 key located at the bottom left
    3. Type your own mobile phone number in the dial pad
    4. Type a message
    5. Tap send
    If the issue still remains, try to remove the SIM card from the phone and insert it to another handset just to isolate the cause of this.
    With your Facebook notifications, are you referring to the OS notifications through the people hub or the facebook application from the store? Do you wish to turn off this notification? Please inform us to provide you further assistance.

    Hi samra-vishal,
    Sorry to hear you're having an issue with your Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones application.
    To clarify, you are not getting a notification icon on the main screen of your device? 
    Does your device play a tone or vibrate to indicate a notification? Does the icon have an asterisk to indicate a new notification? 
    What's the software version on your Curve and the Facebook app version?

  • Facebook notifications not showing in Notification Center.

    Facebook notifications are not showing in Notification Center. I have everything "on" in Settings, Notification... All the other things work.
    Do I have to activate something elsewhere?

    Hi guys,
    I found a solution that worked with me.
    1- Delete Facebook app.
    2- synch your phone and install it again.
    3- create a US account on apple store that have a us address.
    4- download Facebook Messanger.
    You will be able to receive Facebook message on the lock screen.
    Try it.

  • Facebook notifications while using seperate email folders?

    I don't use the primary message folder because I like my emails seperate. When I get a Facebook notification via email, it would typically be intercepted by the FB app and would go to the location on the FB app (Like messages or notifications). This doesn't happen anymore when I hid the primary message folder and only used the individual email folders. Is there any way to fix this? It annoys the fact that I can't just quickly click on the folder and see what's up. Now I have to go to the Facebook app itself and look there.
    Thanks!

  • Facebook Notifications Stopped Working on iPad 3

    The push notifications stopped working on my iPad 3 since yesterday. Anyone knows anything about it? All my settings is just the same as they were before. I didn't changed anything. I reinstalled the app several times, rebooted my device, i did EVERYTHING i could, but just the facebook notifications isn't working anymore.

    You aren't the only one. I now have NO sound at all in FB with YouTube or even just uploaded videos. Surely we won't have to wait for an date!
