    hi

    this feature on my desire has never worked but im only just getting round to asking why.

    it happens when i get a facebook notification and drag down the notification pane from the top of the screen

    when i get a "new poke" notification and tap the message it takes me to my facebook home page and i can respond to the poke, that works fine. however when i get a "new message" notification and i tap that it just redirects me to a blank page. ie the weblink doesnt work

    is there anyway to edit the weblink for this notification so that it redirects me to my facebook homepage?

    its facebook for android as far as im aware, it came preinstalled on the phone, you just need to go into it, then hit menu button and then tick the boxes for what you want notifications for, ie pokes messages friend invites

    I'm getting the same problem, but the funny thing is I only started getting notifications in my notifications bar a couple of days ago and in the early house! It also used one of my MP3s as a notification sound which woke me up at about 3am.

    I get a blank page when I click on the link in the notification bar, and if I clear the notification it just pops up again about an hour afterwards, so I can never get rid of the notification! I have also unticked all the notification settings in the FB app but still get them.

    I get the notifications and can view them. It never originally did this, or maybe i didn't have the right setting. I can see friend requests etc.

    I also get the notifications for messages, but those never show, just get a blank screen.

    I figured out i was using the Task Killer to Kill the app so i wasn't getting notifications.
    Plus i also had to check the phone led option.
