My facebook app has stopped sending me updates or notifying me when people write on my wall etc. All ive changed recently was not having facebook e-mail me or text me when i get updates (mostly to stop the stupid speed date stuff...) any idea if this could be causing my facebook app to not notify me or why it would be doing that?

Check your notifications again. This happened to me recently and it turned out that all my notifications were switched to off.. happened to a few other users as well. There was a thread about it a while ago.

If you have your notifications set to off, you will not be notified in the Facebook app. To my knowledge, the app works by intercepting the email notifications which then in turn notify you through the Facebook app on your device. So yes, you will have to turn some notifications on for the app to notify you of anything.

I love the Facebook App for the Blackberry, anxiously awaiting the next version of the software.
