    Can you use facebook chat on the ipad through the safari web browser? I saw a video on youtube where it worked, but for some reason when I go to the facebook website the chat bar never pops up like it does on a computer

    Make sure you use the normal site, not the mobile one. Safari on iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch always takes the mobile site if theres one available

    Thanks bro, but it looks like I am using the full site....

    Apparently the facebook chat was working on the ipad last month but facebook took it off for ipad users for some odd reason. I am not sure why :/

    unless anybody has it currently working?

    This may not be the best solution, but you can buy BeeJive IM for Facebook Chat.
    I use that application on my iPhone to do so.

    I found the exact url address for the facebook chat so when I open it, its only the chat, its nice and simple, I may get that double browser so I can have facebook open normal and the chat page open next to it
