This is the route that the OS allows. Until there's a share option that doesn't require the app, AFAIK the only other way to get iPad photos onto Facebook is to get them off of the iPad via email or download and upload them from some other device.

You could use an app like Dropbox.
But you need to just give the Facebook app access to your photos.

Giving the app access to your photos DOES NOT ALLOW FACEBOOK UNFETTERED ACCESS to ALL the photos on your device. It will not SYNCH all your photos to Facebook unless you want it to (no one does this).
You have to give the app permission so the Apple Operating System knows that it is OK when you hit SHARE that it can release that one photo to Facebook.

I do not trust facebook, so not gonna do it that way. I'll stick to transferring photo to computer and uploading that way. However, perhaps the OP will not be as paranoid as I am.

Suit yourself. But I'm telling you it works and Facebook is not stealing any pictures you do not voluntarily share from your phone. No one would be doing it if that was the case.
Open Facebook on your phone.
Click the side menu to bring up that menu. Go to Photos. Click on SYNCED at the bottom.
It should say ask there if you want to Sync Photos. If it is asking you then it is NOT looking at your photos. It will only upload one when you share it to Facebook.
