    Have you noticed that because of the new screen that images on Facebook look blurry?

    Comparing images from the iPad 2 to the new iPad is like night and day. It has almost ruined my experience of the Facebook app.

    I guess this is a positive, but also funny.

    Slight pixelation on them. I use a DSLR so pretty high quality to begin with and look awesome when downloading. But, yeah most sites have some slight pixelation due to the super high res screen.


    Oh they look fine on my 1080p 24" monitors but the retina iPad is a bit past HD.

    It has nothing to do with the app being optimized. If people post crappy looking pictures they will look crappy regardless

    I think it has to due with the fact that facebook downsizes all images uploaded. The pixalation is more notticeable on the hi-res iPad screen.

    It's pretty ugly to look at.

    When you upload photos to Facebook, they usually upload high res versions also, so once the app is updated I am sure many photos will look better.

    The screen doesn't make them look blurry, they ARE blurry. You can just see it now.

    Whenever I'm feeling dumb, I find reading few threads on MacRumors always boosts my confidence.
