Facebook For iPad App: Who wants a dedicated option?

When look at the giants of social networking, Facebook is by far the largest. Facebook currently has more than 500 million active users. According to Facebook’s statistics, there are more than 200 million active users who access Facebook through a mobile device.

Facebook’s research shows that the users who have Facebook on mobile devices are twice as active as non-mobile users. The Facebook app is free on the iTunes store, although there is still no dedicated app for the iPad.

You can download the iPhone version and it will work, or you can use the webpage for Facebook, but is that enough? Neither the webpage nor the iPhone app is optimized for the iPad. Some of the other social networking sites have dedicated iPad apps like Foursquare and Twitter.
