    Ve installed the iPad Facebook app and would like to set up my account and my husbands on the iPad but it won't connect to the second account. Does anyone have a suggestion how to do this?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    When in the FB app in landscape mode press the tab top left which is 3 lines, the page will shift to the right and you will see all the different sections of FB. Scroll down to Settings and press this, a box will come up with options one of which is Log Out, press this and a new page will appear, from which you are able to Add Account. Press this and sign in.

    Thank you. I figured out how to log out but when I try logging in as the other account it just spins and never logs in. If I go to Facebook via the web, I don't have a problem.

    You should be able to log back in in the other account. So close the FB app completely and then relaunch it and try again. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. Now see if it works and let us know.
