    Facebook App Notifications


    Hi,

    Hoping someone with knowledge of Facebook can help (not sure if its the App or FB in general, not a big user of it)

    I like the way the app integrates so use this over the website, but i keep getting a message in Action Centre about unread Notifications

    Today it has just told me I have 29 unread notifications, if i open the app, or go to the website, I might have 1 or 2 notifications but nothing more

    Any ideas on what these notifications are as i cant find them on FB itself?

    Thanks

    Just a guess here.....do you have in page feed likes, Groups, game feeds that you are connected with. That would be my guess.

    Thanks, I will give that a check

    I am a member of some groups, so that could be the cause

    Just seems odd i dont see these notifications when viewing the website or inside the app, just in action centre

    Looks like that could be it
    I had a couple of groups set to give notifications

    Have now turned them off so will monitor for the next day and see if its resolved

    Something else to look into.....depending on what browser you use (chrome especially), when you join such groups/feeds, chrome will ask you do want to be notified....I always select "never". I'm not sure how the integration is with Edge or IE and have not seen it in Firefox....that I can remember.

    Thanks for the tip, I use Chrome so will watch out for that one

    Mainly only use FB to chat with Friends/Family, not used the groups feature much, even though i am in a few
