iPhone and iPod Touch
  • If you are using an iPod Touch or an iPhone it is relatively far more easier to activate the facebook push notification within the Facebook application.

  • For this you need to simply go to the settings and select the Facebook , click Push Notifications and then finally turn on all the notifications which you like and go back to your home screen.

  • You might want to use the option above for other phones as well, since you will be able to reply back directly to your notification using the email and/or SMS Text Message.

Final Note

This may seem somewhat tedious but after you have made this settings you will receive SMS Text Message or an email instantly as soon as someone pushes something in your account. Hope you will find this Tip interesting as well as helpful.
