Sorry if this has been figured out already - but I see a lot of threads about facebook messages not coming through to the messaging app and not alerting you if not instantly, then later.
The issue is with the status of the person trying to message you:
If they are on mobile through FB (the little phone icon appears by their name on the website) - their messages will NOT come to your messaging app.
If they are green and online - the messages will come almost instantly to your messaging app.
I also believe if you have FB messaging turned on through them messaging app - you will not receive messaging alerts form the FB app itself - I noticed Facebook for WP8 does not play nice when it has two or more connections fighting for it - for example: Photos in my Skydrive were set to auto share to facebook (which I forgot about) so when I took a picture and tried sharing it - It would always fail to upload or I'd have duplicate pictures that were set to private.
Anyways, I tested all this out with multiple people and with out fail my theories were proved right. MS needs to change this to work with more modern Facebook API's ASAP because Facebook integration is one of the big selling points of WP8.
