The notifications used to open within the app, however, as Facebook have added features to the website version, the app has not been kept in step, and instead they now choose to open some notifications on the web (where you'll see their adverts).
If you do go into the app, and use the notifications within that, it will display most content in-app (notable ...
The facebook chat option was removed. You can use the Facebook app to chat with your Facebook friends.
EDIT: The chat option has been removed from the Facebook app. You need to install the Facebook Messenger app.
This is an issue with the app itself.
As it turns out, the official Facebook app for Windows Phone has actually been created by Microsoft.
There are a lot of discussions about this app here and many people asking for many updates. Your best bet is to add your voice to these conversations.
Do you have your Facebook account linked "properly" to your windows phone account?
You can still chat without it, but I wasn't receiving all messages, I'd be receiving some, I'd reply, but I wouldn't receive the message in reply to mine.
Once I linked them, it was working. To check if you have linked them properly:
Log into outlook.com
Go to Account ...
The first tick indicates that the message has been delivered to the Facebook server.
The second tick indicates that the message has been delivered to the recipient's phone. It doesn't necessarily mean that the recipient has read it.
If the profile picture of the recipient appears, instead of the tick it means that the recipient has read your message.
Go to Settings - Battery Saving. Even if you have the setting here permanently set to Disabled, slide right to Usage and search Whatsapp within the application list displayed. Tap on it and ensure the option to allow it running in background is enabled.
This seems to be not related to connectivity limitations like most replies I've ...
Problem is with Microsoft Live(Messaging service). The connection to facebook will persist only ping/pong between facebook and client(Live) taking place. Messaging's background is not much effective, that why you can't get all the messages.
Once you enable Facebook chat on your WP, you can see an app is added to your Facebook account as other apps (like photos or candy crush) and all these apps will use your all personal information. They can save all the info to their server. But with my experience Microsoft is able to show you all the history of your chat on Microsoft account. That means ...
For Windows Phone 7.x devices, (according to Deezer Customer Support), you cannot login with Facebook, but must use a Deezer account; to quote their support:
To get a new password go to the Deezer home page on a computer and before signing in to your account click log in and make use of the "forgotten password" option.
Right now, there doesn't seem to be a way to separate the two. In Windows Phone 8.1, the Facebook app acts as an intermediary between your phone and your Facebook account. So your events on Facebook are synced with the Calendar app on your phone and the Calendar app notifies you when it's time.
As you've already noted, you can turn off the calendars all ...
Just for helping others: the problem is solved by upgrading to Windows 10. It seems all apps using FB before were using the same engine/framework which has been resolved in Windows 10 OR it was a GUI bug inside an older version of Windows 10.
The Facebook Messenger app on the phone is very unstable, sad to say. I've had the behavior you describe a few times before on my Lumia 950 XL, and it sucks. It seems to take longer to happen if I always close the app (press-and-hold on Back and then swipe the app to the bottom of the screen to shut it down) than if you just leave it suspended in the ...
Looks like that version of Messenger is no longer supported on Windows Phone 8.1. Here's an official announcement from Facebook stating that various apps would be discontinued on older operating systems, including WP8 as well as older versions of iOS and Android:
Update on messaging support for older versions of Messenger and Facebook apps
I haven't done this, but if you link your Microsoft and Facebook accounts I'm pretty sure this is possible, for friends that have both Skype and Facebook accounts.
You can definitely open someone's page in the Contacts application and Skype them from there. I've also switched to a Skype video call from a regular phone call as well.
If you experiencing issues with an app, in general, you could write a review in the store and explain that the app constantly crashes, even after reinstalling, etc. Responsible app developers do monitor the reviews, and do now have the option to reply when it's relevant.
