Actually, Windows+(Shift+)V for toast notifications, and Windows+A for Action Center (I get this sometimes while using Slack, so this is nothing new).

Windows+a for notifications in Windows 10.
Ho, good point. Not a lot of detail can be found on the web though. So the big question: when Facebook sends notifications, you get a message no matter where you are? Like "new notification from Facebook: ..."? If so, these are Windows notifications and there are shortcut keys (I keep forgetting) to interact with them. If that's the case, I'll comeback with more information on how to handle that. Further, if that's the case, you should be able to find the shortcut keys, searching for Windows shortcut keys for notifications (there's a Windows + something or other to access the list, nothing specific to NVDA as far as I know).
That being said, it's just a guess. Facebook could have NVDA dynamically read some messages on the page (though it wouldn't work when you're not on the Facebook website). These messages may just be ARIA alerts. If so, interacting with them as notifications should be supported by facebook (and probably isn't), there's no standard to do that. ARIA alerts are good but not great (for me who use a Braille display as sole accessibility system with NVDA not speaking at all, ARIA alerts are useless).
