Facebook app notification dots

Hi all,
So this has been annoying me for years… I had an S7 and wasn’t getting notification dots on the app icon, I tried so many fixes over the years and nothing worked. I was bought an iPhone XR for my birthday and I get the icon notifications, but I miss a few features that my Samsung had so bought a S10e and it doesn’t receive the Facebook app notifications! Is there anyone who can please help?
 
Install a different launcher from the play store, such as Nova launcher, which will allow notification dots on whatever app you want.
Thank you, I installed Nova Launcher, still not getting any notification dots on the app icon, not sure if I'm getting them on any icon, is there a setting that would need changing on Nova Launcher?

its in the nova's settings. if you have the prime extension(its not free) then you should see an option for "notification badges". if you do not have Nova Prime then i suggest you get it as well. it unlocks so much more customization and its a one time fee. i paid mine almost 10-12 years ago and i still use it to this day.
