There’s already a Facebook Pages app for people to manage their Pages on the social network, but we suspect it’s used more by marketing teams than musicians, actors and other celebrities.

It’s the latest salvo in Facebook and Twitter’s innovation scrap to get celebrities as engaged as possible with fans on their networks.
