Apparently, Facebook is trying to get people to engage with the network with a new push notification that asks them to post an update.

"Name, tell friends what's on your mind. Post an update," reads the new iOS notification.

Here's a screenshot of the new push notification, via Bijan Sabet:

Facebook confirmed to Mashable that the new push notification is part of a "small test" that they are currently running. If just looking at this annoys the hell out of you, find solace in the fact that Facebook tests tons and tons of features all the time, and only a small percentage of them ever come to fruition.
