    Yes and regarding the FB apps. I don't understand why they don't work on iPhone. I makes no sense. You spend all this time and money on development and no one on an iPhone can see it. Stupid.

    iPhone user design has changed a lot since then. It was a really good app for its time (and one of the first apps from a major player).

    Because it will be more optimized for a touch interface?

    Even though the iPad screen is the same size, the links, and buttons on FB are still designed for mouse usage, which is not as efficient for touch usage as an app designed with that purpose is.

    I'm reading a lot of "Meh" here. Is it because people are non-plussed with the app, or just getting tired of Facebook and/or their antics in general?

    Yeah, they sure did.

    Just like everyone said they did when their membership was at 50M.

    And again at 100M.

    And again at 250M.

    And now at nearly 1B.

    Why do we, .... eh, they keep fXXXing themselves like this?

    Interestingly a report out today indicates that Facebook may be following you around the web even when logged out.

    An explanation of the patent app here:
