When talking about the social networking landscape, we often think that there isn’t any more room when you consider the reach of sites like Facebook, Twitter (News - Alert) and Pinterest. The social networking site known as Path is trying to prove the naysayers wrong by taking to the iPad for the very first time. The fledgling social networking site, which is built to allow you to follow close friends and family members, launched their iPad app yesterday.
The developers of Path say that the iPad’s screen is just the right size to work with the website. The company issued a blog post where it talked about how easy it was to see your friends’ check-ins and arrival moments using the landscape view on the tablet.

"Path in landscape-view is the best way to catch up with your family and friends, revisit days and the moments that made them special," Path said.
The application will also allow you to view friends’ updates in a full screen view and you will also be able to see other people who have looked at the “story” put together by the application. The company also talked about the navigation that this new app features and the information that the home screen for the Path app will offer up.
The developers also said that while this particular service is supposed to be more about following people you have known forever, as opposed to following a friend of a friend, this new app will make it easier to expand your social circles.
While Path seems to be making strides in making itself a recognizable name in the social networking circle, it has a lot of work to do before it’s anywhere close to even footing with the bigger, more established sites.
Facebook (News - Alert) for instance, feels as though it has pretty much perfected the friend interaction portion of the site and is now dedicating more attention to the business side with features like “Collections” which will make it easier for retail entities to interact with potential customers.
