    So I had to reinstall iOS on my phone today, and after redownloading all of my apps, I noticed that the Facebook app never popped up a push notification request like it has in the past. Has anyone else noticed this? Don't I have to approve the app's ability to send me notifications at the OS level?

    The phone could have saved the facebook app settings because the OS has built in integration with facebook so the facebook app is not treated just like any old app. (same with twitter, podcasts etc.)

    And in a weird turn of events nearly two full days later I open Facebook and get the push notifications prompt. Hmmm

    Negative. Every time I opened the app that little globe had numbers on it telling me I had notifications (the phone just wasn't pushing them at that point). That little globe got tapped a good thirty times before iOS ever prompted me for push.
