The facebook app for android is complete cr*p and will only send notifications when it feels like it. If you want a more reliable app search for "Friendcaster" on Play store.

You haven't changed your password on the main facebook page?

Have to agree with MI5, it is a terrible App.

Did it tell you not to use it?

I found out that it was the cause for all my Battery issues/lock outs.

Unless any of your "trying" involves reprogramming the app you're wasting your time Smiley Wink

On your recommendation I'm giving that one a try, I was using Seesmic but that isn't too brilliant either.

Seesmic can be good, I like the fact you can add Facebook and Twitter into one app, but overall I found Friendcaster to be the best for FB.
