    Sorry if its been asked before, but when I do a search for Facebook app, not much comes up.

    I am coming to the G1 from a BB8900. I loved my BB, but I really needed something that was going to actually be able to surf the web, and not freeze up all the time, when I install more then 3 apps.

    BB had an awesome notification system for Facebook. It could be because I have the wrong settings. But I am finding with this app, I am not getting the notifications that I would have gotten with my BB app. For example, replies to a status update, or a link, or a photo comment. All these would normally be sent to my email address that is registered with Facebook, which would be sent to my phone. I have my email address as a yahoo account for facebook. And I have my yahoo email set up on my phone. But I do not receive ANY notifications from my yahoo email, like I do from my gmail account. i.e tone notification, or the message at the top of the screen. I have to actually open up that folder to access my yahoo email account.

    Is this a flaw in the app? Or did I screw up my settings somewhere? I hope I explained it right. Thanks in advance!

    There is an application called Bloo. A lot of people find it nice and find it better than the offical Facebook for Android app. Someone else would have to answer your question with that problem.

    Bloo is okay. Needs a widget, though.
