FB Help!

Member

1) I'm not receiving facebook notifications.  I have the "Facebook for HTC Sense" added in the managed accounts area in my settings.  Also, in the actual Facebook app, I have the Notifications area checked as Active, and all the notification settings below that (messages,friend requests, etc.) are all checked. However, I'm still not receiving any notifications to my phone if someone writes on my wall or comments on my status.  What am I missing?

 

2) When I upload a picture to Facebook after taking it with the phone, I'm not finding any place for me to tag people within the pic.  Am I missing something there as well?

 

 

I've just switched to this from BB Storm, and so far I love how much fast everything runs, just trying to work out the little kinks along the way.  Thanks for any help!

 

And I know it's not going to change, but I'd also like to voice how disappointed I am that I cannot get rid of any of these preloaded apps that I will NEVER use!  At least I should have the option to hide them like I could in BB Storm...

I am having the same issue with Facebook.  I have tried both the Facebook for HTC Sense, and the Facebook Ap from the Ap Store.  I never received a notification if someone comments on my status or posts on my wall.  I occassionally receive a notification if I receive a private message. 

 

I haven't tried to tag anyone in a picture that I have uploaded from my phone so I don't know if that is an issue or not.

Try downloading the app, 'f-plus - facebook tool', also known as blue notification (the icon is a blue box with an F and a '+' sign in it). Its like $0.79 but worth it ...it works much like the notifications on the blackberry. You receive an actual notification from Facebook, not thru email or SMS and you not only receive notifications from your profile/pics, but also notifcations from comments you made on other peoples profile and it refreshes as often as every 15 minutes. You cannot access your profile from this app, its more like an add on to the existing FB app, whether its Sense, Touch or a shortcut to the mobile site.

 

Several preferences as well, such as how often to check for updates, change the light color notification, which FB to open when checking a notfication (full site, mobile site, touch site)

 

Been using it for a couple of days and its working nicely for me ...especially since the standard is receiving notifications thru SMS or email and you only receive notifications when its related to your profile.

 

Try it out!

i don't mess with the apps. you have to use multiple fb apps to get it to do everything you want. i just have my fb account settings sync'd to my phone. i get exactly which types of notifications i want texted to me (certain friends' status updates and comments on my pics, viceos, or status). i then just use the mobile site (www.m.facebook.com). i find the text alerts (which come IMMEDIATELY) and the mobile site way more useful than any of the apps combined. i set it as a favorite on my home screen so it is as easy as opening an app. i also customized when and when not to receive text notification in my fb account (i don't get them between 10 pm and 7 am). when i want to upload a pic, i then use the "share" option from the menu on the pic (which i believe actually goes through the fb app for android). i also use qik to share video instantly to fb. qik is the best app ever!!! if you are in to sharing live video. you can view WAY more info on the mobile site than any of the apps.
