    Will there be one at Launch? Or will it just be the iPhone's version blown up?

    In the Safari guided tourshows facebook.com and it looks to be fully functional... So maybe a dedicated ipad app isnt needed?

    How long did it take facebook to utilise the push notification system? I reckon it'll be awhile before we see an iPad app from facebook - although it would be a great app!

    As much as facebook.com would be the logical thing to do - facebook.com is designed for mouse/keyboard use, so a touch UI would be so much nicer.

    Although will facebook bother with an app?
    The current iPhone app is ad-less, so the more people use iphone/ipad facebook, the less ad impressions for FB

    Facebook should leverage this as a great opportunity to evolve the site for iPad and INCLUDE ads.

    A specific iPad app that optimizes the site for touch, but adds ads in a non-intrusive manner would be KILLER!
