Facebook notifications for iPhone 4s , iOS 7.0.4

Hello. I recently did a clean restore because of some app crash problems and after I finished installing all the apps and logged in , the facebook app does not prompt with push notifications approval. I tried reinstalling it and nothing. I went then to Settings-Notification Center to activate them manually and the app is not listed there , not even in the "DO NOT INCLUDE" list. After some moves , trust me that I have no ideea which and what i did, i finally got the app in the Settings - Notification Center and I manually activate the notifications but they are not working. I even did a restore and then again , the same problem. I don't even know how to get the app listed again in the Notification Center settings. The only solution I have found for now is to restore from an older backup and there it works , but that backup is the one where the apps keep crashing and I wanted a clean restore so I will not have this problem anymore. Does anyone know what it could be?

It's a mystery why this problem seems so hard for Facebook to nail down. My answer is "Johnny can't code" or "we're working on it."

Ok, so I found a solution thanks to an amazing person on the Apple Communities. What you need to do is: Go to your facebook settings on pc , then to Security. There , on the last 2 things , remove everything about your ios device , on trusted devices and at active sessions too. Then do the restore , this time as new, and then when you install facebook , it should ask for your permission for the push notifications and then it appears in notification center settings and it works. I just fixed mine!
