    Is there a way to select Text in Facebook posts on an iPad and copy it to another app?

    Welcome to the forum.

    The official FaceBook app does not support copy&paste; however, as Leelai said you can visit FaceBook in Safari and use copy&paste there.

    Great. Thanks! I'm pasting to a translation app. I'll give it a try.
