It is about that time friends and fam, that Facebook rolls out yet another new app. Mentions is Facebook’s newest app aimed towards further connecting public figures with their fans. Currently, Mentions is only available for verified Pages within the US. The app allows said “public figure” to join in on the conversations focused on them.
They can also then do a list of other things that you can do from the regular Facebook app, but hey, at least you’ll know when you are trending (unless you might have already known that because you are a super famous celebrity and/or musician)!
Though other Facebook apps have been less than viral in the past, maybe this will be the one to break through the clutter. As I am not a public figure myself, I have no relevant opinion on whether this type of closer connection is useful when engaging with your audience. As a fan of many celebrities and musicians, I would really like to see this app take off so I can continue to declare my love for all things G-Eazy related in hopes of him actually seeing it. We can all dream.
