    I have an iPod touch, and the facebook app there is amazing. As soon as someone posts on my wall or whatever, I recieve a notification. Why doesn't Android do this? Or is there a setting somewhere I have to click?

    It is very annoying that I have to physically go into facebook to recieve my notifications.

    Thanks for the help!

    This has always been a problem with the Android FB app.

    well that is sub par at best.

    There are no third party apps that are free and take care of this as of yet?

    Push notifications require a huge amount of server power and infrastructure, so third party apps are unlikely to provide this functionality.
