I’ve been watching the Facebook Live event this afternoon, with Mark Zuckerberg talking about some ‘big news’ for Facebook and chat. Built-in video chat via Skype was announced, as many expected.
The other big news from the event is no news on a Facebook iPad app. It didn’t even get a mention, though Zuckerberg did say they’ve been ‘buy building stuff’ for around 6 months now and that over the next few weeks and months they’ve got a number of things to announce and launch.
I’m sure this will disappoint a lot of iPad-owning Facebook fans. Until Facebook does decide to release an official app for iPad, we’ll need to keep using either Facebook in the Safari browser or one of the various 3rd party Facebook apps available in the iPad App Store.
My current – and fairly long-standing – favorite Facebook app for the iPad is Friended. What’s yours?
