How famous do you have to be to get Facebook's new VIP app?

It's not easy being seen

Exactly how famous do you have to be before Facebook will let you use its new VIP app that's supposedly in testing?

A "small group of famous people" are apparently getting the early view of the app - but whether we're talking Michelle-Williams-famous or Beyoncé-famous, nobody knows.

Anyway, it just lets the great and the good keep an easy eye on their Facebook fans and get involved from a sensible distance. We don't think it comes with a goody bag.

More blips!
