Facebook to celebs: Play by the rules when promoting products
Prepare to start seeing more celebrity-endorsed ads on Facebook.
The social network is now extending its rules about how verified profiles can share branded posts, officially letting stars and influential personalities monetize their Facebook audiences — something that was already happening but wasn't allowed.

LAGUNA BEACH, California — Facebook just gave an early look into an experimental camera app that uses artificial intelligence to make live video look like art.
Speaking Tuesday at the Wall Street Journal's WSJD Live conference, Facebook Chief Product Officer Chris Cox demoed the app, which he said offered a look at how the social network is investing in augmented reality.
