Rather odd. Yesterday my Facebook notifications started showing up like this when I open them:
Posted by Facebook User
In Unknown Album
Dec 31, 1969 16:00
Retrieving photo comments...
Then nothing. They have been working fine for many a month prior to this.
Blackberry Torch 9810
Facebook for Blackberry v188.8.131.52
I am kinda thinking this is a Facebook issue as I've notice even the Facebook Group notifications have changed some. Anyone have any ideas here to help me out?

Thank you for the reply. There currently is no update available. Perhaps this is the reason it is messed up as this all started yesterday and you mention an update released yesterday.
I am not a member of Blackberry Beta but will try to find some information on that. T is rather madding at the moment as it has been working fine on this version since I installed it months ago.

Thank you again for the info. I was able to sign up and download and install the newest beta FB app... Alas it does not fix the issue. In looking at this further it appears that notifications involving a photo are the issue. Other notifications have changed in appearance also. I suspect that this is going to be a widespread issue as either RIM or FB has changed something in the way they handle pushed notifications.

An update to this...
There is a long thread on this on Blackberry Beta Facebook App.
I posted as well there now letting them know that it is not a beta issue as it was happening to me on v3.2 as of yesterday. So I suppose we can say this is not something us mere users have any control over.

Well it isn't just me its a number of people. As you are not having issues and others are we can most likely correctly assume that Facebook has tweaked they way they are doing things and as always roll these great feature updates to groups of accounts at a time. One has to love Facebook.

Same issue here, I receive the notification, click it and it pops up with "posted by facebook user in 'unknown album' Dec 31, 1969 6:00pm". I'm not receiving notifications for post comments at all.
Thought I'd google around to see if it was just mine or what... Found an old blog from '04 where the individual was receiving blank emails with that same date on them, but 7:00pm instead of 6:00pm.
