    This is a common issue with the way WP integrates with Facebook, unfortunately. The apps that people are using to send you messages are using FB messages instead of chat, whereas the messages embedded in the SMS tile uses Facebook chat. You can also catch this behavior when someone sends a chat but your computer might be logged in to FB and it comes in as a message. Not sure if this is FB's or MS's fault. It used to work a long time ago before FB differentiated between messages and chat.

    Possible workaround: pin the messages page from the FB app to your start screen and pop in there periodically. Far from ideal, I know.

    I have the same issue, since using windows 8 i noticed i'm always available on facebook chat everytime i logged on to fb via IE, even if i logoff (turn chat off then logoff) i believe people still see me as logged on and keep sending me messages via chat but somehow ends up on my fb messages inbox everytime i open fb

    Right, because the iPhone app uses FB messenger, not FB chat, whereas WP uses FB chat in the embedded chat. If you are wanting to communicate with people the best current workaround is to pin the messages page from the FB app to your start screen. Unfortunately it does not appear to be a live tile on either WP7/8, so you'll have to periodically check it. :/

    I agree, MS needs to work this out ASAP. I'm one of the few who doesn't pay for text, so I depend on chat services like FB/Skype/Kik. Notifications work for a few days, then just stop. I need to open the app to see if someone is messaging me. Skype worked for a while on my L920 then just stopped, no notifications. I moved over to FB chat, again a few days then no notifications. Finally, started using Kik and it worked longer than FB or Skype, but like the others it stopped working. Good Grief!

    Are you sure about WP8 using Facebook chat? I sent an FB message to a friend via the WP "SMS" client and never received a reply. So after a couple of days I logged in to facebook itself and saw that my message was in my FB Messages section, including a reply, which I've still not received on my phone. BTW the reply was sent via the iOS FB messenger app.

    Either way this is pretty crap as the FB integration has been a much-vaunted aspect of WP8.

    Yes, I am sure. Facebook groups everything together on the web, but in the mobile world FB Messenger (stand-alone Android and iOS apps) and FB Chat (built-in WP) are two separate things.

    I agree it uses the chat function too. Not sure if you can do messaging though.

    The WP Facebook messaging implementation is unreliable, nothing you can do about that.

    1. Did you set the 'Use Facebook Chat' to 'on' on you messaging settings?
    2. After #1, did you swipe left to 'Online' page under messaging and set you chat status to 'online'?

    Is FB Messenger different than a FB app?

    My wife sends me messages from her iPhone all the time and I always get them. I even get a big 1 sided conversation if I am ever chatting with her while I am on the PC. We use FB to chat instead of texts while we are at work.

    I do not think she uses a messenger though, she uses the FB App. [I am Lumia 920, she is iPhone 5]
