This answer appears after many, many complaints of the same thing on an Apple Forum (link included).

here is the latest answer, for which I can't take credit beyond pointing you to it and hoping it works:

Re: can't sign in to facebook on my ipad, error message 'enter the Facebook password for "" in Settings.' in response to tracey104 I have been struggling with this error message since it first appeared on my iPhone many, many moons ago. I have tried to fix a few times but gave up trying.
I tried my Facebook password like it requested and got the "..could not communicate with server error message" like everyone else. Today it showed up again and I vowed to fix it once and for. In addition to my iPhone, I have an IPad 4. I have never seen the message appear on my Ipad. In my iPad I went into settings, Facebook, and lo and behold i saw my name right below settings. I clicked my name and it said:
Full Name XXXXX XXXXX (my first and last name)
User Name XXXX.XXXXX.33 (<<<--- this is the key to the whole mess. Firstname dot lastname dot 33)
Password ooooooooooo (this is your facebook login password)
I stared at the User Name in amazement. This is probably what the facebook setting was needing, but it was only asking for password. So here is what I did:
I hit Delete Account and it then it asked for those three pieces of information. So I entered in my iPhone what was on my Ipad 4 and it cleared everything up. Now I was lucky I had another apple device with my User Name already inputted. Where would I have found out that crucial piece of information if I had not had another apple device? It is part of your Facebook login web address. Another place you can find it is: Log into facebook account, go to About and look for your contact info, it will be something like this: bill.smith.22@facebook.com bill.smith.22 is your User Name
So basically your Facebook has three names attached to it: #1 your name = Bill Smith #2 User Name = bill.smith.22 #3 email or phone that you put in your web browser with your password to log in to facebook. Confused? So was I. I hope my instructions weren't confusing.

Keeping Data Safe in iPad


With the evolution of iPad computing become more accessable at anywhere. In the IT industry iPad becoming the safest computing device to use. The hardware and software security combination of the iPad makes it more secure and safest computing device than Macintosh or PC. Recently no remote attacks are faced by the iPads, but the major security risk is physically losing the device.The passcode and encryption methods in iPad makes the data safe and secure.
With the use of data protection we can encrypt the e-mail messages and attachments. To enable the data protection go to Settings--> General-->Passcode Lock and then enter a four digit code twice.To make the passcode more safe tun off the Simple Passcode option on the same page then you can use longer codes. The passcodes can become more secure and strong by installing iPhone configuration utility.
Remote wiping is also another utility to delete data on a lost iPad when it connects to the internet.If you have MobileMe account, you can set this by
enabling My iPad in Settings--> Mail,Contacts,Calendars--> MobileMe.Corporate or Business users who are using Microsoft Exchange Server or Kerio Connect can use Exchange ActiveSync support to wipe their devices. All these things are managed on the server not on the iPad.So we will need to work with our IT administrator.
There is also availablity of secure email connection in iPad. Perfectly configured Microsoft Excange servers encrypt data by default. If you are using the IMAP or pop3 server and it supports SSL you can go to settings-->Mail,contacts, calendars-->youraccountname-->Advnace on iPad and enable it.
If you loose your iPad the first things you should do is change your password and deauthorize the device for any services such as Dropbox or iDisk that you used for connecting to it.

When I received this iPad from my daughter & loaded my Facebook it opens in her Facebook. She had every thing removed & reset before she gave it to me.


Get your daughter to go into her Facebook account.
Ask her to go into account settings. You will find an area that allows you to sign in it of ALL devices.

This should disconnect her Facebook account from your iPad.
Uninstall the Facebook app. Soft reset the device (power and home button) then reinstall the app when it comes back on.

Let me know if this helps.

I get replies to emails on my nexus tablet but they dont appear in my Apple iPad, can you solve this proble.


Assuming both tablets are set up to access the same email account, go into the setting for that email account on both tablets and make sure they are both set to leave messages on the server. What can happen when accessing the same email account from multiple devices is that the first tablet that checks for new mail (usually done periodically) picks up the message and removes it from the server, then when the next tablet comes along, the message is no longer there so that device does not display it.

I press Facebook icon blank page what do I do


Hi
If you are being blocked then it is likely that you are not entering the login details that Facebook is expecting, whether they have been satisfactory in the past or not.You could try this, go to the login page here:,
Facebook
just under where you input your password you can click on "forgotten password". This takes you to a page where it says "find my account" where you can enter "Email, Phone, Username or Full Name". Try entering one of these (My email gave the best result for me) and follow through the instructions to reset your password so that you can access your account.
There are also some options depending upon what you have lost, ie you can't log in, your facebook page has been locked and you can't change it, or it no longer appears to exist. I could go through them all but it has already been done here:
How To Recover Your Facebook Account When You Can No Longer Log In
This details various methods of account retrieval you can try depending upon the exact circumstances.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers
