I have a 2010 mbp. To be honest I don't know, but I do get fb notifications now.
I shutdown my mac, held the shift-control-option keys and the power button down for a few seconds, took my fingers off then pressed the power button to turn it back on. (To make sure it worked I did do it twice.)
Asked my girlfriend to send me a fb comment and couple seconds later I got the notification.
Maybe reset your permissions and clear your PRAM might help too.

Resetting SMC worked for me too. I suggest the following sequence: 1) remove FB account, 2) shut down computer, 3) reset SMC (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964) and 4) add FB account once again.

This is my first post to this forum although I've been watching after it for quite some time.
This is my status:
I had the facebook preview version installed and my notifications from facebook didn't work at all even after the 10.8.2 ML update.
I tried resetting my smc like it said in the manual and for the first time i got a notification from facebook after i sent myself a message from my dad's account.
I thought that the issue was finally sorted out but when i tried sending a message from my gf account i didn't get any notification.
I restarted my computer and all of a sudden i got notifications for messages from 3 different accounts!
I have no idea if resetting the smc is the ultimate solution, it seems like it worked for me but I'm not sure it solved it for 100%.
Hopefully my experience will help others,

Facebook notifications don't work on my machine neither.
What I did was to look at third party apps in the AppStore and now I'm using Glow for FB which is really highly reliable in terms of Facebooks notifications, although it's isn't real-time: it seems to check "only" every 15 seconds.

Did you modify the "hosts" file?
Maybe some value in this file is blocking notification center to receive data from servers. Some keygens or cracks modify this file.
I couldn't login with "iMessage" nor "Facetame" because some entry in hosts file was blocking some user verirication server. So I modified the hosts file to default values and tried again, everything worked ok.
Open this post to obtain details about how I did it
So... check if your hosts file has just default values:
1. Open a Finder and click Menu Go > Go to Folder (or shift+cmd+G)
2. Type /private/etc/
3. Open the "hosts" file with Textedit, and compare values with the following default:
# Host Database
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.

My Facebook notifications stopped showing up in Notification Center nearly four weeks ago, though I really only noticed for the past week or so. I could *post* to Facebook from Notification Center and Safari, but wasn't getting any FB notifications.
Several times, I tried resetting PRAM and SMC, alternatively deleting and re-adding my Facebook account and was about to give up when I decided to look for your solution post again. The only thing that fixed my notification hitch was deleting the databases you highlighted, though really, I only removed the more Facebook and Notification Center-centric ones.
Logged out and logged back in and VOILA! Facebook notifications working for me again! Hope the rest of you having this issue find their resolution.
