Im posting this here as a suggestion from stack overflow.

Has anyone noticed that with new facebook accounts, real time updates are not working? Meaning received messages, chat, and notifications do not work unless you reload the page. I have been digging around network tools and code and seems like the pull calls are not being made on new accounts, but instead a reconnect call is done. Does anyone know why is this happening?

Tried with two machines, both windows 7, 4 browsers (firefox, chrome, IIE, opera). Which was even weirder, my facebook account worked fine on all of them, but my friends ("new") account didnt, and neither any new fb account i create, even if my original one works.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

FB Support is the best entity to handle this question. Right now there are only 125 questions on this site (inclusive) with the facebook tag, not sure how much help SU will be. –  BigHomie Jul 8 '13 at 19:31
Ya fb support is empty obviously.... Its really weird no one has this issue, i guess everyone in the globe already has a fb account so no one had this problem. –  Cristiano Coelho Assis Jul 8 '13 at 21:18
