Facebook is reportedly testing a VIP-only mobile app for celebrities.
The social network wants high-profile members to be more active on the site. The VIP app would let famous members monitor conversations around them, and have an opportunity to respond immediately. Having more famous members could draw in the younger audience.
Celebrities are quite active on Twitter. That activity increases overall engagement for the site.
Facebook is also trying to help connect it's users who speak different languages. The company announced this week that it bought the owners of the translating app, Jibbigo.
The app lets you voice record, or type a message. Then, you choose from over 25 languages to have your message translated . The translation can be read aloud to you, or displayed on screen. The app translates even if you're not hooked up to the internet. There are Jibbigo apps for both IOS and Android.
Apple's next iPad is expected to resemble the iPad mini. The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple is using a film-based touch panel instead of a glass panel. Meaning, the device will be thinner and lighter. A longer lasting battery could also be included. It will reportedly cost the same price as the fourth generation iPad, and we could see it as soon as September.
