Facebook has been trying to make it easier for celebrities and other public figures to talk with fans. The company’s Creative Labs team today announced Mentions, a new app available for verified users and public figures. The app allows for more seamless communication between celebrities and Facebook fans and gives public figures a better way to see the discussion about them happening on the social networks.
Facebook introduced the new app (only available for public figures and verified pages) in a blog post:
