Facebook Launches Mentions App for Public Figures


Today, Facebook introduced Facebook Mentions, a new way for public figures to chat with their fans. If you’re a public figure, Facebook Mentions gives you the ability to share photos or videos, updates, and host live Q&A. You can also see what fans are saying about you. Mentions is currently available in the U.S., and you have to request access to the new app, even if your account is verified by Facebook. Facebook will be rolling out Mentions to more countries in the coming months. Facebook Mentions app is available for iOS and Android.
