Cooper Amps up His Digital Footprint.
Following his daytime talk show (Anderson) officially joining Instagram one week ago, Anderson Cooper joined the filtered photo sharing platform, just over an hour ago (8/1/12). Instagram (now owned by FaceBook) recently reported a user base of 80 million strong.
The social network today announced the upcoming rollout of its new app center, aimed at giving developers the chance to grow their social applications and at providing users with a one-stop shop for apps.
Buried in the app center announcement, Facebook also said developers will have the option of offering paid apps, allowing them to charge users flat fees to access their apps via Facebook. The social network referred to this initiative as a beta program, and it said interested developers can sign up here. Further details were not available.
The app center is not live yet — Facebook’s announcement said, “In the coming weeks, people will be able to access the app center on the web and in the iOS and Android Facebook apps” — but developers are getting a head start to prepare, with an app center guide and guidelinesalready published for their use.
