As of this week, you can also use the Facebook app on your iPad. You can enjoy high resolution photos, games, chat and all the social networking capabilities the app has to offer on your iPad.

Facebook software engineer Leon Dubinsky announced the release of Facebook for iPad yesterday, the 10th of October. He explained that the app offers the “full Facebook experience, right at your fingertips” and that it is “a fun way to keep up with friends, share photos, chat and more.”
