    Blackberries, use push to send you instant updates for mail, myspace, facebook and the like, android only does full push notification for email as far as I can tell.

    Blackberry achieves this with the BIS or BES servers, of which android does not have an equivelant.

    Have Facebook send notifications on your gmail account...its very instant...from there you can either open up the facebook app or click the link to be directed to the touch site...

    I have the bookmark to the mobile facebook site on my homescreen. it gets more notifications in the newsfeed and is real time, though my notifications in the notification bar are not any more instant because of it.

    however you can refresh facebook (native app) manually by just opening it or clicking menu>refresh in the app.

    Use Launcher Pro Plus and the Facebook widget (you can see comments and comment/like via widget). Set the update/poll time to 5 minutes. Then set your notifications on facebook.com to use your gmail or sms and then they are instant. Replying to the email or text also comments back to the notification.
