For example, I’m more likely to trust a review about a social media app from someone who is a social media professional vs. an average user. This is where AppSocial by Nokia comes in.

Add a regular blog to the community, add competitions, add an ask feature, add an upload photos section, add a referral feture. If members aren't interact with each other, it's tempting to add more features. Before long, you have a community that looks a littlie like The Glenlivet. If members aren't interacting, the solution isn't to add fringe features. At best, they provide a blip of activity (if heavily promoted), at worst they are a distraction from current activity.
