Accessing notifications in the latest version of Facebook for iPhone

iOS and iPadOS

Hey y'all. I recently updated my Facebook app and now when I go to the notifications section, it just shows me birthdays, anniversaries, events, Etc. Does anyone know how to access actual notifications like likes, comments, and tags? Thanks in advance for the help.:-)

Actually your post is a duplicate as this is already beeing discussed here

This is beeing roled out to facebook users. As of now there is no way to access these.

This roll out literally happened late Friday evening while I was using Facebook. I had commented on a thread, made my way back to the main tab, heard that I add a new notification, and upon entering the notification tab found everything to be severely broken. After trying to figure it out, I needed to have my sighted girlfriend Press the non-voiceover accessible button to take me back to the original notification list as it was before the roll out.

I immediately fired off some angry tweets to @FBAccess and submitted accessibility bug reports via their online interface. They immediately got back to me saying that they are looking into this issue, however since it was an end of day roll out on Friday, I'm sure nobody worked over the weekend. Going to keep submitting reports and bugging them until they get this fixed… Really upset that they just did this in application update without testing anything first.

Once again there's a forum thread on this topic. What you have here is a duplicate thread. On the toehr thread you might get more attention as this started happening about 2 weeks ago for some people.

I'm not surprised that they did this. I submitted a bug report, they said they submitted a patch but they took 3 months to release it, ridiculous!

Take care.
