Facebook for iPad has been a long time coming and between you and I, it should've been here weeks after the iPad launch 18 months ago. But, are we edging closer to social network goodness on the iPad? Possibly... It looks like we might see the iPad app unveiled at Facebook's "f8" developer conference which is being held in San Francisco on September 22. The f8 conference is aimed at getting Facebook app developers together or people who want to integrate their website with Facebook in order to showcase Facebook's newest feature additions.


At the last f8 conference, the "Like" feature was unveiled which let you spread the word about a website, brand, product, video or anything else of interest to your Facebook friends. This years f8 conference is being held at the San Francisco Design center which will be the largest stage ever used for an f8 event, which is leading people to believe Facebook is set to unveil something quite large.

As with other f8 events, the event will focus on demonstrating new tools within the site which are set to work more efficiently with the current ones, as well as a live Q&A session which will allow developers to ask questions from the Facebook crew, as shown on the f8 website:

f8 is for developers, entrepreneurs and innovators building a more social web by defining tomorrow's websites, apps and devices. This all day event will feature keynotes and session tracks that highlight our new and existing tools for developers and partners building the next generation of social experiences.


Tickets are already sold out, but I'm sure you'll be happy with that. They were $400 a pop.
