So it has been found within the Facebook for iPhone update. I found many guides online for how to enable it with macs but none for pc so here's how I did it.
connect your iPad to your computer
install the iPhone version of the Facebook app on your iPad
Open or download and open iFunbox ; your connected iPad should be listed there
inside iFunbox open the Facebook folder under "Apps"
navigate to the subfolder called "Facebook.app" and open it
copy the file "info.plist" to your desktop and open it (I simply copied the file to desktop then opened it with notepad)
Then change the value of "UIDeviceFamily" to "2" (from 1) it's near the bottom .
copy "info.plist" back to your iPad via iFunbox (replace the old version)
Exit device safely then respring your iPad and hey presto. Facebook for iPad opens when you click the Facebook app.
It's a whole new app not the iPhone app stretched and sources confirmed it is the official app due to be released soon.

I think FullForce dose the some thing. Only problem is, is that when the Facebook app is running in it's fullscreen mode, logging in doesn't work :-/

No it's not just the iPhone app streched to fit the screen. It's a whole new app. The official Facebook app none the less. Facebook have got wind now anyway and won't let u log in from the new app anymore. I had it like 24-36 hours. Great app. Can't wait for the official release.

Sailor-Girl is right. Facebook released the iPad app with the recent Facebook update. But the problem is they hid the iPad version within.
So basically the iPhone app has an actual iPad version within but closed off. That is where the process she described comes in and fixes that.

Facebook quickly blocked the hack that enabled the hidden yet-to-be-launched Facebook for iPad app hidden in the iPhone app.
But chpwn, developer of jailbreak apps such as Infiniboard, Infinidock, Infinifolder, ProSwitcher, VoiceActivator has released a jailbreak tweak called FaceForward to re-enable the iPad app on a jailbroken iPad. Find it in cydia now.

You're missing the point. No they don't all have iPad versions but can all be forced to run like one. Try. It.

There is a HUGE problem with enabling the iPad version this way. I can no longer log in.
I was using the faceforward cydia app and that did convert it to the ipad version and it worked but if I change the 1 to a 2 it no longer logs in.
For now if you want to use the iPad version then use faceforward from cydia.

This unlocks a totally different iPad Facebook app, this is not just the iPhone app sized up. Can confirm I've got it worked with the FaceForward tweak too. Looks great!

WARNING! The latest version of Facebook DOES NOT have the iPad version in it so this no longer works.
