    I am having difficulty in getting Facebook Notifications (toasts?) I liked how my iphone got notifications. What can I do? Is there a different app?
    It seems as though my tile does not update to my latest status update?
    I cannot save someone else's picture on Facebook?

    The Facebook experience on WP has some quirks, but it's better than it was and hopefully more improvement is on the way. This thread has some info and feel free to ask any questions you have there. I'm sure someone can help out with answers. Good luck. Facebook : features, discussions, rants, issues, solutions

    I can deal with the notifications as MS works on this and from what I hear it is a few weeks out.

    In the meantime:
    1 ) How do you all save photo's someone has posted to your timeline? I went into my PC, and just emailed them to myself that way. Then, I saved it and got a share to My Skydrive.
    2) How do you post multiple photo's and include a status update message with it?

    Thanks

    The Facebook Beta app seems to work fairly well but is still missing some features. The "official" app sucks! Of the features it does support, most don't work or only work partially. The main feature I have an issue with is sharing a post. I get some error about privacy settings or some nonsense. I fire up JDB and do the same thing and it works just fine as does the Beta version.

    The downside of the JDB FB app is that it doesn't let you do Checkins. They want you to load one of their other apps to do that (and I think it's not free). Other than that, it's pretty good.

    I use the People Hub for casual browsing, and if I want to do something that the People Hub doesn't support, I fire up the FB Beta app.

    I have a question/issue of my own. I am using the Facebook Beta app which for me is way better than the Official one. If I upload a photo from there all is good. However if I go to a photo in my Camera Roll, click the ellipsis, choose Share and then Facebook it never uploads. Are others seeing this issue as well and is there a way to fix this?

    Have you configured FB on your phone's system? (Not the app but the default system)
