    I did make it here however, so maybe i'm improving ! ;)
    So, i am needing o know if anyone can tell me how i can save posts on Facebook from my newsfeed to my wall with iPad 2 ?
    And, as well, does anyone know how to save things from online while surfing on the iPad? as in, in a bookmark type of
    deal or what app to put it in and how to access it while surfing without having to get off your page while surfing?... Like
    as in chrome with tabs?

    Using the FaceBook app the only things you can share from your newsfeed to your wall are the ones with site links. To do this you have to tap on the link. This will open the site in a browser like page. From there you tap on the box/arrow icon at the bottom of the screen and choose Share Link.

    You can do most of the things your are used to doing with FaceBook by visiting FaceBook in Safari. It's not an ideal interface, but usable.

    Safari has a bilt in Reading List feature. When you are reading a page that you like and want to be able to read later tap the box/arrow icon and choose Add to Reading List. This saves the page offline, and you can come back and read it whenever you like. To get to your reading list tap the book icon and choose the glasses icon at the bottom of the pop-down menu (iOS 6). If you are still on iOS 5 tap the back button (top left of the pop-down menu) until you see Reading List in the list, and select it.

    There are other apps like Instapaper and Readability with similar and more features; but Reading List should do for most people, and it does not require any extra accounts or setup.

    You might also want to look into Evernote. It has a slew of features ideal for gathering data and keeping it synced to multiple devices/computers.
