    This is not a jailbrake solution or alteration to any default software. This is using the factory settings to turn this feature on so that your Facebook push notifications will work on iOS 6.

    I solved this on my iPhone 5. It would work for 4 and 4s as well. I think this will work for the iPad’s too. So go through the steps and try it out.

    First make sure this is done so that you can go on to the actual solution. Facebook push notifications are controlled inside the actual Facebook app under “Account Settings>Notifications”. They are NOT controlled under the iOS “Settings>Facebook>Settings>Notifications”, if you go there you will be directed to the actual Facebook app.

    Now it’s time for the solution to the problem. There is one more step that you need to do that doesn’t turn on by default for some reason.

    STEPS:

    1. This starts from your iOS device home screen

    2. “Settings”

    3. “Notifications”

    4. “Facebook”

    5. Turn on the “Notification Center” – required to have the push notifications work

    6. Under “Alert Style” by default this is set to “None” for some reason. So, turn this to the style you want.

    7. Turn on the “Badge App Icon” – if you want to, this will display the number of new notifications on the Facebook icon, just like it does on your Messages app when you have a new text message

    8. Turn on “Sounds” – if you want to, this will play a sound when a new Facebook notification comes in

    Well that is it! I hope you enjoy receiving your Facebook push notifications on your iOS 6 device now.

    I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but on my phone, all the settings are already the way that you specified and my notification sounds still have not worked for a month.

    I can manage a badge on the Facebook app, and upon 4 re-installs of the Twitter app, nothing. :/

    Ummm, how is this a "discovery"? You do this for every app you want a notification for. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work correctly.

    Unrelated to Facebook; but I don't get any badge alert when using Tweetings. I get the alert sound (twice, randomly) but no visual alert anymore.

    Okay, Facebook Messenger fully notifies me now. Facebook does as well. However, neither Echofon nor Twitter send me push :( stupid Twitter!

    I got the iPhone 5 yesterday and installed Facebook and signed in in iOS settings and the app. But I didn't know default was off. So I just turned them on. Maybe I will see some notifications now

    Facebook gives me sound now. By default, the sound setting wasn't on, but once I did it worked D: Weirdness. Also, I've tried for Twitter.. oh well, not worth it haha.
