It is reporting new items, but there are no new items listed. Then after about 5 minutes it'll report the same thing.
IE: Someone 'liked' a pic I posted.
5 min later, I get a notification in the live tile that that SAME someone 'liked' the SAME pic.
I clear that, then 5 min later I get a notification again that the SAME person liked the SAME picture.
This happens until I get a different notification and then it repeats with the NEW notification.
I've tried unsyncing my Facebook account, then resyncing. But this didn't fix it. I tried powering off and pulling the battery, didn't fix it.
This only started a few days ago. Used ro be fine.
It's annoying the crap out of me!
Any help on this?

Yeah I guess it's not you alone, I'm experiencing it too and boils me up. Actually blamed my network but now that a lot of people are also having the same issue, I think it can be from MS and it needs to be fixed.

I have a lot of problems with it not telling me I've got notifications on facebook. Let's say I've got three notifications, a 30-minute-old one, a 2-hour-old one, and a four-hour-old one. Sometimes it'll only tell me about the former two, and when I go on my computer, I realize I had a notification from way earlier in the day.
Although the "me" tile interface is more attractive and quicker-loading than the FB app interface, I've started using the latter because of this issue.

Just now my me tile reported 7 notifications-
There were none.
Deleted it. Using Facebook app now. This is sad that there is a an issue such as this with absolutely NO support for.
I see posts in SEVERAL different forums daring back to September about the EXACT SAME ISSUE.
And so far, not a single word from Microsoft regarding the issue.

I thought I had this problem because of the terrible reception at my parents' house (whom I was visiting this past week). I had up to six notifications on my tile at one point that won't show when I go to the notification center. It comes back anytime I go to the start screen. I was worried it was only me and that I'd have to hard reset my phone. Good to know it is a server problem.

I have the same issue and even changed phones and carriers over the weekend and it still occurs. It was happening on my Arrive and I figured it was something that would eventually clear, then I moved to a Titan on AT&T and it is still doing the same thing...

I can't imagine that the cell phone carrier would be responsible. I think it's some issue with the Windows Phone 7.5 OS talking with Facebook correctly about notifications. I don't know whether the problem is on MS's side or FB's side, but it seems to me the problem has got to be there. It's not like I ever get false notifications in the mail app or any other app, so it can't be the carrier's fault (if it was the carrier's fault, it wouldn't be tile-specific).
My suspicion is that it's FB's fault. FB in general has been very buggy recently--the private messaging feature in particular springs to mind (they don't always go through immediately, and you don't always get notifications when they do go through). Whereas other Windows Phone 7.5 apps are so polished (the mail app and its notifications work perfectly), it seems unlikely that Microsoft would just completely screw up notifications for this one tile and never do anything about it.

I am having this same issue it has been happening for the past 2 days. It seams the Me Tile wont clear Facebook notifications anymore. I used the facebook app to clear the notifications and my Me Tile is no longer showing the notifications.

Honestly I'm glad to see its not just me. This has been bugging the crap out of me the last couple of weeks. I bet it's a communication issue with the FB servers. Honestly, now that Windows phone is picking up speed, Facebook should allow our People hub access like an official app and not a 3rd party one.
