The notification settings can be found within the app.

From within the app tap the settings symbol (3 horizontal lines) at the top right of the screen. Scroll down to settings then account settings and notifications. From here you can control the notifications for your account which can be sent by Facebook. The settings here will limit what any app or device will notify because they are your account settings & will apply to all devices & browsers.

Then press the back button twice & select app settings. Choose a refresh interval & select which notifications the app should give you. Note that these are the notifications that apply to this device. It can't notify you of something that you have not enabled in your account settings in the previous step.
