Default [Q] Notifications on lock screen? (stock One S)

Hi, I have a unrooted HTC One S and was wondering if there is any way I can get Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, Snapchat etc notifications on my lockscreen? Not as little symbols on the top of your screen, but in the same way as the text message notifications work (I'm using the 'Productivity' lockscreen)
Thanks!

My One S is rooted, but I'm using a widget called 'Dashclock widget'. Check it out in the play store, might be what your looking for.

That would be what I'm looking for, but I don't have Android 4.2 so I cannot use widgets on the lock screen.

I prefer NiLS from Playstore, but here you also have to be on 4.2
There are two possibilities:
Use WidgetLocker from Playstore and NiLS (read description of NiLS).
Or you root your device and directly go to OS 4.4.2 KitKat where you can put widgets on your LS

Dashclock is great. You'll need to also get Dashnotifier app that goes with it. Its worth going through the process of rooting and getting custom ROM for the new features in Android 4.4.2. Take a look at Twistedkat ROM which is working great for me. Dashclock widget works a treat on this ROM. You can also add widgets to the lock screen on kitkat ROMs! Genius.

You can also use Widget Locker but it's paid app
