A lot of people are complaining about issues with Facebook notifications. Specifically, some users of Facebook's Messenger app are having problems. We're seeing complaints that people using the app are getting notifications for old messages.
One user of the iOS app tells WebProNews the app keeps alerting them to previously sent, old messages. This person says that from about ten messages a friend sent today, they've gotten about 40 alerts.
The problems may not be exclusive to the Messenger app or the iOS version. People are also complaining a lot about notification issues on Twitter:
I hate when Facebook tells me I have notifications but when I go look I have nothing.
