MATLAB is not supported on any of the mobile operating systems. In order to deploy to one of them, you would need to generate Java or .NET or C/C++.

MATLAB is an interpreted language, not a compiled language. The "compiler" generates files of threaded data structures that are interpreted at run time. The run-time library to support that is about 700 megabytes -- which includes, for example, all of the support for graphics.
This distinction between compiled and interpreted is important because the iPad, for example, has only 256 megabytes of RAM, and the iPad 2 seems to have 512 megabytes of RAM. Even when Mathworks was starting out on PCs, the minimum memory for the original MATLAB was 384 megabytes.

I have not looked into how Facebook applications work.
Looking at some documents now, it appears to me that it might be possible using the Java Builder tool.
