    Try rebooting the iPad. Turn the iPad off. Now hold down the Power and Home buttons until the white Apple logo appears - it takes about 6-9 seconds. The iPad will reboot. See if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't, get back to us and we'll make some more suggestions.

    OK - another thing to check. What restrictions have you got set?

    Go to 'Settings', 'General', 'Restrictions'. Do you have any age or other restrictions set. If so, then - if Facebook is impacted - the icon won't appear on the Home screen at all.

    Try removing all restrictions - at least as a temporary measure - to see if that's the problem.

    Have you by chance filled up all you home screens with icons? The iPad can only display so many pages. You can get some of that back by creating folders for less used apps, or to organize. Tap and hold an app untill they all start to jiggle, then drag one app on top of another.

    Ok. Have you tried going to the App Store and see if it will let you try downloading it again.

    It's a long shot, but otherwise you're starting to get into restore territory.
