    Hello guys after trying everything that i found in google i decided to take the matter in my own hands :D
    So facebook notifications have been a serious problem for many users for a long time,and this is how i fixed it !
    Go to Settings -> General,scroll to the bottom -> Reset. Click on Reset All Settings (this will reset all your settings and your phone will switch off.
    When switch on your phone,go to Settings -> Facebook -> click on your facebook account name -> Delete account.
    Your notifications should be working now.Test them and if they do,you can sign in your account again.
    P.S. This solution has worked with 4 people by now (iPhone 4s,iPhone 5)
    P.S.2 I don't know if there is any connection,but i do not have Facebook Messenger installed.
    Hope i have helped !

    Hello,

    Did you also have problems with sound with your facebook notifications? My issue is that, I receive notifications from Facebook but with no sound. Not sure your methof applies, but I tried it anyway. Still no sound..

    I noticed that i only get sounds for messages and not for other notifiactions..but still it's something because i wasn't even getting the notifications before that.
    It seems that (for those who don't want to jailbreak) the 100% solution to the problem lies in the hands of apple or the facebook app developers , but i doubt they're gonna do something about it any soon.

    Just a note for those using PushTone. My intent once I got this to work was to locate the original sound file that is used when this notification is working.

    I found it inside the Facebook.app folder (using iFile). It's called chord.wav. If you use Bridge you can import it as a ringtone and then use PushTone to select it. In this way, I got the old sound notification back.

    I swear, this application has more problems than a dog has fleas! Notifications work then stop working out of the blue for no apparent reason and the sounds were working "shortly" but then stopped. Now, I get no sound and no notifications...............WTF?

    Saddly, after trying all the tips I could find (restore, toothbrush to clean the dock port, blowdrier, pray) my sollution was to Jbreak and use pushtone.

    Now, it means it's not an hardware problem but software but apple couldn't (wouldn't?) solve it...
