It seems like forever ago that Facebook promised push notification support in version 3.1 of its incredibly popular iPhone app (iTunes link). Now it has arrived, just in time to usher in 2010. 3.1 brings the promised push notifications, and also the ability to sync your Facebook contacts with your iPhone’s Address Book for a more seamless communication experience.

Right away upon opening the app, you’ll be asked if you want to enable push notifications, and you’ll also encounter a dialog box asking you about contact syncing. Turning syncing on will automatically add links to the Facebook profiles of all the people it finds in your address book, and you can also choose to replace the photos for those contacts with their Facebook profile pictures.

As for the push notifications, they apply whenever someone sends you a new message, or whenever you receive a new wall post, friend request, friend confirmation, photo tag, event invitations and updates, and comments. If that seems like a lot, you can go ahead and selectively disable any options you don’t want to receive a push notification about. I’m actually very happy with the implementation. It means I can disable email updates for most of those things. Here’s what it looks like when you receive a message. Not too much info, but it gets the job done.

Contact syncing seems to be a little hiccupy at the moment, but that might only be because I’m also using MobileMe to sync my address book across all computers. It does appear to be working very slowly despite some error messages, though, but I find that the “fb://” format links don’t open anything on the Mac. Probably because the Facebook app developers didn’t count on people who have a desktop syncing system implemented. They automatically launch the FB app on the iPhone, though.

What do you think? Well done, or were you looking for more from Facebook push?

  1. Very cool.

    I guess FriendSync is no longer needed.

    1. The contact sync sucks. It links to people who are not in my contact list and downloads their pictures and facebook page. I want it off of my phone now. Who the hell do I get in touch with to remove this contact sync bullshit?

      Share
    2. How do i disable the push notifications once i have enabled them?

      Share
  2. I’m not sure I’d trust *any* iPhone application to sync to my contacts. MobileMe has enough sync issues, the last thing I’d want to do is toss in yet another sync routine.

    1. You are right, this created duplicate contacts that I now cannot remove and the new update didn’t even download my contacts facebook picture. This update is crap… wait it out for another version.

      Share
    2. yes, mobileme was really uncomfy 4 me and i returned it ….i do love apple n all their products, but it felt like mobileme was a ring in provider who was really lacking the great service attitude apple has…. not to mention clear instruction on how it worked, unlike apple which alwasy guides u thru the set up of systems

      Share
  3. About time! I guess I can turn off the Facebook service on Boxcar, now. Now, if only Tweetie 2 can get push notifications…

    Share
    1. Does Box car not push on Tweetie 2? I noticed it on the list of services they provide, but I assumed that ‘Tweetie’ includes any version of Tweetie.

  4. The friends list is pretty useful even without syncing. The handset icon to show you that there is a phone number in their profile is great. You could almost rely on Facebook to keep your contacts updated, but lots of people don’t put their numbers on there.

    Share
  5. On push notifications – I got a friend request and never got a push notification. So that is a bit rough. Or the friend request came in before, I am not sure.

    On contact sync – it worked flawless with me. I had no issues, update contacts and contact photos. The names have to match word for word in the address book and Facebook. So best of luck if you have nicknames and / or not last names.

    Other than that, it worked great. Synced with my MobileMe and all the contacts now have pictures in my Address Book.

    Thumbs up from me.

    Share
  6. I’m hoping a future update will allow you to link Facebook profiles to contacts with nicknames, the way MyPhone+ does now. Showing you a list, and letting you choose the appropriate match. Suggesting near-matches and the like. Very handy =]:

    Share
  7. I can’t find where you edit the settings for the new push notification feature. (whether on my iPhone’s facebook app or on the computer. Anyone know where these settings can be found??

    Share
    1. Settings : Notifications : Facebook

      Share
      1. ah ha! thank you :)

        Share
  8. The pictures that sync to your contacts seem to be extremely low quality. So low, in fact, that the people are unrecognizable when both zoomed and unzoomed.

    Share
    1. I agree. Was pritty disappointed with the photo syncing compared to MyPhone+. Hope they fix this.

      Share
  9. Where is it exactly that you can selectively disable which notifications that come in. I’m with Christian, i can’t seem to find a settings tab or anything.

    Share
    1. Maximus, it’s in the settings of your iPhone itself, not the app. Go to Settings, Notification, then scroll down and you’ll see Facebook.

      Share
    2. weel, no. tap “settings” then scroll down to “facebook.” if you go under “notifications” then “facebook,” you’re setting a different kind of notifications.

      Share
    3. thx brian, I don’t know why I didn’t figure that out by myself…

      Share
  10. What exactly is pushed? I know they have listed, comments, photo tags etc but what exactly…?

    ALL comments? like status, wall post comments, tagged status comments, photo comments?

    ALL photo tags? tags of your own photos (even ones your not in), tags of only photos your in, someone tagging your photo?

    Just so I know what email notifications to turn off, because if they will get pushed I’ll end up getting loads of duplicates.

    Also is there any way to have the sound/vibrate function and just a badge – I dont really want the blue box popping up every so often.

    Share
  11. You can disable the blue popups by using the standard iPhone Settings app. Go into the Setting app, select “Notification”, then “Facebook”, and there you can disable alerts.

    Share
  12. Oh, and the specific notifications can be disable by going to Settings -> Facebook -> Push Notifications

    Share
  13. Thanks for letting my know how to display the notifications like I wanted to.

    But I think your getting confused on the specific notifications, I know how to change those settings. But I want to know which ones to do via the actual web version of facebook, if you go to facebook normally and click settings, then notifications there’s a huge choice in more detail – all of which I have turned on for email.

    That’s what I mean, sorry if I confused you.

    Share
  14. What about the re-syncing of contacts? What if you need to resync or add people that didn’t connect on the first go round of syncing but really are on facebook? Does anyone know how they link the contacts on your phone to the facebook pages? Is it the email or name??

    Share
  15. Does anyone know why these synced pictures only appear as small images in the upper right as opposed to occupying the whole screen when receiving a call? Is this possible to fix?

    Share
  16. Even with “Replace Photos” set to “off”, it replaced all my custom photos with the facebook ones. Also, the facebook ones will not appear full-screen when the person calls, just as a small pic in the top right corner when they call. What crap.

    Share
    1. Yup – same here.

      Share
    2. i think its full screen because that person on facebook has a phone number registered in their facebook profile and its an exact match. otherwise its a small corner picture

      Share
    3. It’s based on the dimensions of the picture. If the picture is under a certain size then it’s displayed in the upper right, if it’s over a certain size then it fills the entire screen.

    1. As a workaround, you could turn off syncing and remove the pictures from your contacts on the iPhone.

  20. isn’t anyone uncomfortable with facebook uploading all your friends details from your addresbook?

  21. push notifications are great, but itd be great if it opened the actual message/comment instead of the notifications page.

    my biggest gripe is with syncing. upon syncing, all my contacts pictures were replaced, despite me not setting the slider on replace profile pictures in the app. There was an update the next day that said it had bug fixes for syncing, but it still seems to overwrite whats there regardless of what you ask.

    another useful feature would be manual syncing. some of my friends on facebook dont have the same name as in contacts “Joe ‘idiot’ blogs” for example, and are therefore not synced. would be great if i could do them myself.

    only 2 more things i want now, groups support, and wall to wall views!

    Share
    1. YES YES YES!!! I totally agree, manual sync would help so much. And the push thing would be great too!

  31. How do you turn off push? It is driving me crazy and it’s using up bandwidth.

    1. This is wrong, the iPhones push notifications do not use your phones internet connection, they are delivered over the carrier signal. Hence why you can still get push notifications when don’t have any internet connectivity.

  36. There are some that I do not want to sync, and some that sync wrong. Even if the name is a nickname on my iphone with no real name info, and this contact’s fb page has no phone number info, it still manages to correctly (against my wishes) match up.

    How is this possible without looking up the phone number against a 3rd party (AT&T) to get the name info?

    Share
  37. Mine has synced about half right and half wrong. Some contacts now have photos and fb://profile links to someone I’ve never heard of who’s not a friend and whose details I can’t see! Some haven’t synced at all. Are you sure that it doens’t go by phone number? I was wondering if my friend’s phone had been nicked and put in by somebody else (for example) – is that too weird? If so it’s a bit dodgy, imo.

    Also it showed up an FB link to somebody I do know, but who I know wouldn’t want me seeing his real details – I only had screen name (not in his FB profile) and phone number (which I assume *is* in his profile).

    No photos have appeared in Address Book and the link doesn’t work (though I’ll try the script from upthread, thanks).

    Share
  38. Out of 75 contacts only 44 were correct. I fixed them all in Address Book but they haven’t updated on the iPhone, so MobileMe hasn’t synced the changes. I spent yesterday in syncing hell – don’t want to be there today too!

    Many of my wrong contacts were from other European countries. Weird.

  40. Do you know how to disable contact and photo sync once you’ve agreed to it? It’s messing with my WhatsApp app.
    Thank you!

  41. Sorora – I had the same problem with whatsapp application. If you go onto the facebook application and then click on the menu in the top left, then click on the ‘Friends’ menu and you should see ‘SYNC’ in the top right, from there you can change the sync options, whether you want them on or off.
    When I went on they were both set to off even though I accepted them both so I clicked both on and let it sync, now whatsapp works again and with them enabled….. good times. hope that helps.

    I was wondering if there was any way to make the profile pictures stretch across the whole screen when somebody calls you. Each picture synced from the facebook app is only in the upper right corner when somebody calls, whereas my other pictures spread across the screen when that person calls. Is there any way to fix this?

  47. My contacts aren’t syncing properly at all since I turned FB syncing on.

  48. Same problem here–push notifications almost never worked. I got one, even though since I’ve downloaded the update I’ve received multiple comments and whatnot, but have seen hide nor hair of them before nor since. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling three times. I’ve checked to make sure they’re turned on to push several times (both via notifications and via settings > Facebook). Then I reset all of my network settings, and then I reset all of my settings. I want push notifications for Facebook so badly that I actually wiped my phone, set it up as new, and then restored all my apps. And they STILL don’t work. I don’t understand what I could be doing wrong here, and I got one, which is bizarre, because I feel like I should be getting all of them or none of them. Not just one. I don’t know. I’m displeased I guess because Facebook is the app I use the most and I was overjoyed to see that it had push, only apparently it doesn’t.

  51. My Push setting have never worked!!! I dont understand why…. I have removed, re-installed re-booted, reset networks, all of the goodies, jailbroken, reset, name it…. This is really shitty! It would be so much better for Push than to wait for the stupid e-mail to come in!!!!

    Share
    1. I did the same thing. Facebook broke all of my push notifications. My phone was jailbroken, and I actually un-jailbroke it. I thought it might have been the jailbreak, but when I posted about it at Macrumors someone said that Facebook notifications weren’t turning up for him or his wife, and in fact were blocking the push notifications for all of his applications. So I tried just uninstalling and rebooting, and my push worked fine. Then when I re-install Facebook, back to not working.

      Sending FB a message…here’s hoping.

      Share
  52. I figured it out!

    The notifications come to my phone and I receive a desktop message but it doesn’t make a sound or vibrate. So, if you don’t see the msg right when it comes, it doesn’t reappear the next time you unlock your phone. It also doesn’t leave a badge even you have that function selected.

    I tested this method by seeing an Alert come in as it should work. But, I didn’t unlock until after the screen went black again then unlocked to find not msg or badge, but when I entered the FB app I did have the same alert waiting in my notifications.

    Seems like w weird bug that needs patching.

    Try it yourself and see if its a uniform problem.

  53. Push not working too!

  56. [...] Facebook iPhone App Update Brings Push Notifications, Contact Sync | Comments say mostly a user hell – When I updated my Facebook iPhone app I didn't turn on the new notifications feature or the sync contacts feature. I'm glad I didn't. Like many I live in a sync contact sort of hell and never really take the time to sort out one good list and makes sure it goes back to all my accounts. I use Boxcar and Notifications to provide the push updates I need. Facebook…. let me know when you get it right. While no-on mentions it…. I also didn't want to send the 1500 contacts not in my facebook account to facebook. They don't need them. I'd like the sync to be one way. Eg Facebook recommend updates to me locally. I can then approve even one by one. I don't need to send anything back. Thus help me make my address book better. In other words I will "flag" the contacts that I want to be kept in sync with Facebook [...]

  64. Yeah Apple, now I officially hate you. The older Facebook App isnt working anymore unless I upgrade my Ipod OS to 3.X, seriously someone should file an anti-trust lawsuit on you guys and split Itunes and Apple into 2 companies…maybe the europeans could do that.

    You are forcing people with your monopoly to pay for an OS upgrade which you said last year you didnt want us to pay for, excuses and basically making all our apps stop working until we pay up. I paid for an Ipod, sure I accept that to get the latest apps I should have to pay for an OS upgrade, but I shouldnt be forced to upgrade by Apple and Facebook unecessarily stopping my older apps working thats going to far.

  70. While this is clearly not an option for many apps, it does present a viable option to some. It can actually be an incredible benefit for the company because they get to not only save an incredible amount of money, but they get their app to the appstore in a time period that could probably never be replicated if it were developed from scratch.

    Does anybody else find this app a complete load of sh!te? I’ve had to remove and reinstall it at least 5 times, due to numerous things – it stopped letting me view my mailbox, stopped letting me update my staus, and now it’s decided that if I view a notification and click ‘back’, it’s just going to freeze and send me back to my iphone menu. So, back to square 1. Very annoying.

  77. I just got the iPhone a few weeks ago. I used to have the blackberry storm. I have the Facebook App and I never receive any messages, requests, nothing.. I have all the Push notifications on and still nothing.. Never had this problem with the blackberry. Anything that went on in my Facebook I was sent a message about it.. Does anyone know how to fix this? It is very aggravating..

  80. I had to delete the Facebook app from my G3 because I was getting push notifications even though I changed all the setting to “off” and was logged out… I couldn’t find ANY way to stop them short of deleting the app.

  81. how do you disable these push notifications?
    all of them?
    they cover up the charging screen so I can’t tell when my battery is charging. Its not that I mind the push notifications while on the home screen, its just that I DO NOT LIKE THEM ON MY BATTERY CHARGING SCREEN!! It prevents me from being able to tell if my battery is charging or not
