    Safari won't do uploads, because there is no general file system to upload from (though they really could have included pictures).

    To upload pictures to FaceBook you will need to use another app. The official FaceBook app is free, and will upload pictures. There are several third party alternatives.

    If you really want to use the FaceBook site, you can use the iCab Mobile browser. This app has it's own file space and will upload to 'most' sites. I seem to remember someone saying it worked fine with FaceBook. While most uploads would require you to first copy the file to iCab Mobile, it can access the photo library directly for easy photo uploading.

    There is a bug in the app.

    If you are using the split keyboard, or the full keyboard undocked, or you are using a bluetooth keyboard, the send button does not appear. Or to put it simpler, the send button only appears when you are using the touch keyboard in it's default config.

    It's been quite a while. You'd think they would have submitted an update by now.

    No problem. All kinds of people were pulling their hair out until they compared notes and realized what what happening.

    When I use the official FB app with my iPad and try to upload a photo, I get as far as selecting the image from my iPad photos library. When I touch the image I want, FB goes away and I'm back to my desktop.

    Try these common fixes for app misbehavior.


    When you have problems with an app it's a good idea to clear it from RAM.

    Close/Clear the app: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app. This will remove it from RAM and insure a clean start the next time you launch the app.
    If that does not work try a restart,

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.
