Facebook App Shows Notification But None There

Problem:
The android app icon (the one you see in the apps list) reveals a red number to reveal the variety of alerts pending. However in my phone it continuously reveals 1 alert on the app icon, however when I open Facebook there is no alert. Even if I have no notice, or 10 notices, the app icon continuously reveals one alert, it's truly bothersome.

Solution: Facebook App Shows Notification But None There

Click Settings on your phone > Applications Manager  > All tab > BadgeProvider  > Clear Data
Restart your phone and the notifications should be back to normal.

This is the Settings in Android not in messenger it self and worked for me even with out restarting.


Problem:
Cannot see my notices. They exist however I cannot see them. Its blank. When I click the blank location it takes me to the location of the alert, which I can see, however not the alert itself.

Solution:
This is the URL in my browser address box if I click on the See All link at the bottom of my notifications:
https://www.facebook.com/notifications
Perhaps that will display the notifications for you.
