An extremely annoying occurrence on facebook. A ghost notification is what happens when you click a notification, and it takes you to the appropriate place, but the notification still stays there, so you click it again, but nothing different happens. You get your hopes all up for another notification and it's just another dumb ghost notification.
YES!!!! ANOTHER NOTIFICATION!!!!
