Facebook launched Mentions, a new mobile app, in the US last month. Now the world’s largest social network has brought the app to Canada.
800 million users are connected to public figures on Facebook, such as athletes and actors, and more than a billion interactions between public figures and their fans on Facebook every week. Mentions, built by Facebook’s Creative Labs department, enables public figures to talk with their fans and each other on the go.
As a public figure, Facebook Mentions lets you see what fans are saying about you and join the conversation; share your story by posting updates, sharing photos or videos, or hosting a live Q&A; join popular conversations on Facebook and see the latest posts from people you follow; and get streamlined notifications about your posts, including mentions from other influencers or the media.
The app is usable by those with verified Pages and Profiles on Facebook.
