Facebook app bug: "You have 1 new message"

    Has anyone else experienced this glitch? starting a couple of days ago, I began receiving a notification for a new message from the Facebook app (usually every time I opened it, but other times as well I think). However, there is never really a new message in my facebook inbox. It's getting to be annoying since I have to clear the notification screen of the icon all the time.

    Anyone have any idea what's up or how to fix it?
     



    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Don't have an answer, but same problem. If I clear the message it just comes back a bit later. No new messages. Argh! I JUST installed the FB app after zapping phone. Had no problem like this before.

    This fixed my issue:
    Go to Settings->Applications->Running Applications->Facebook. (if it is currently running). Stop it.
    Go to Settings->Applications->Manage Applications->Facebook.
    Clear Data and Clear Cache.
    Restart Facebook.
    You will have to enter your credentials again.

    It's been 2 days now and no "new message" notifications (except when I really had a new message).
