    Okay, ever since I downloaded The HTC update Android 4.0 or ICS whatever you want to call it, my Facebook wont stay signed into accounts & sync, It says not Authorization failed and I have to sign back into Facebook for Android and Facebook and Accounts & Sync. also after I sign back into facebook it says Authorize HTC Sense. so I have to re sign into that as well. and yet, I still get NO notifications from Facebook anymore. maybe one a week, when before I was getting anywhere between 10 - 100 a day. what do I do to fix this? I've tried wiping data, I've tried un-installing and re-installing. neither works.

    Sounds like the "update" may have been bad. Have you thought about doing a complete wipe? Factory reset

    Try uninstalling any updates to Facebook in Settings | Apps ... then for good measure, click All Apps, find Facebook, click it, and click Clear Data. That will set you back to the built-in Facebook App (with the ICS update, not the Gingerbread one you had originally), and clear login data etc.

    Then go to the Play store and update the app. I'm pretty sure they've had an update (not everyone loves the latest updates) since the HTC OTA ICS update. THEN set up your sync again.

    I had a nasty problem recently that seems to have been fixed by a factory reset, the first since installing the ICS OTA ... there is anecdotal stories that after any major Android update, factory reset the phone for good measure. I doubted that, but today I'm more of a believer. ;)
