Facebook is about to release an optimized iPad app

The Internet was in a bit of a rage when Facebook announced that they didn’t consider the iPad a mobile device back in November, and being designated as such meant that Facebook would not be focusing their efforts on an iPad application at that point and time.  But, rest easy, it’s starting to look like the time for a native iPad application is now.

The New York Times is reporting that Facebook is poised to release an iPad-optimized version of their popular application in the near future.

The application has allegedly been in production for over a year, and has undergone numerous revisions to date. While the app is apparently in its final stages, it’s being stated that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO and founder of Facebook, is overseeing the project himself. It’s expected that the chat and Facebook groups will get a major overhaul, alongside a completely new photo and video experience.

Let’s put it this way: anything they give us will be better than using the website on the iPad, but it’s too bad I’m pretty much over Facebook.
