Question: Why isn’t my Facebook notifications not working?

I have my notifications on but I’m not getting any notifications on my home screen or my lock screen from facebook. I can only get notifications if I click on the app

Hi Taza2737,
Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. If you are having issues with the notifications for Facebook on your iPhone, you may find the information and troubleshooting steps outlined in the following article helpful:

If you don't see notifications for a specific app

To get notifications, connect to a Wi-Fi or cellular network. If you don't get notifications for a specific app, try these steps:

  1. Make sure that the app supports notifications. Go to Settings > Notifications, select the app, and make sure that Notifications are turned on.
  2. If you have notifications turned on for an app but you're not receiving alerts, you might have Banners turned off. Go to Settings > Notifications, turn on Show as Banners and choose a type of banner that you want to see.
  3. Make sure that you’re signed in to your Apple ID. Go to Settings > iTunes & App Stores and enter your Apple ID and password.
  4. Make sure that Do Not Disturb is turned off. Go to Settings > Do Not Disturb and turn it off. Or swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open Control Center and tap User uploaded file.
  5. If you’ve recently installed an app or restored from a backup, open the app to start getting notifications.
