Following rumors that Facebook was planning its first iPad app, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has told everyone to stay tuned for the world’s largest social network to ‘launch something awesome next week.”
Following an earlier New York Times report, Facebook for iPad is reportedly focused on overhauling Facebook Chat and Facebook Groups to be more usable in a mobile, multitouch setting. In addition, the iPad’s newly-gained photo and video capturing capabilities will be pandered to, and you’ll be able to shoot and upload media right from the built-in cameras.
