    No idea. But it worked for 1 min for me a couple of days ago. And then when I restarted my ipad. It didn't work anymore.

    Use Atomic Web Browser. That allows you to get facebook chat back. They took it off when you use Safari.

    my sister bought an iPad the other day and called me asking why the facebook chat didn't work. hopefully there will be a fix for it so that I don't have to hear her whine about it for too long :D

    Facebook is disabling apps that it claims violates its trademark. It disabled developer credentials, which are needed to allow an app to interface with Facebook. It's also requesting the apps be removed from the App Store. News.com reported on it here:

    So Facebook thinks that Safari for iPad is an app? Because FB chat works in regular Safari just fine, and it also worked on iPad Safari for a couple of days. Hm.

    +1 for Atomic Web Browser ... I was pretty happy to see Facebook chat pop back up.
