The Facebook NPE Team unveiled its latest test application, Forecast, an invite-only beta iOS app.

Crowdsourced predictions are the driving force behind Forecast, and the app enables members of its community to pose questions about the future, make predictions and discuss the topic.

Product lead Rebecca Kossnick said in a blog post that making predictions and participating in discussions will only be available via the app to invited community members in the U.S. and Canada, but all of the predictions and discussions can be viewed on the Forecast website and shared across platforms.

People interested in participating in the beta can apply here.
