Okay so you’ve heard of the official Facebook app, and there’s a high chance you’ve now chatted with at least someone on Messenger, what you perhaps haven’t heard so much about though is Facebook Mentions …
Currently only available to public figures who are already verified on the network, Mentions is described as a better way for actors, musicians, journalists and other influencers to stay in touch with their followers and the people and things they care about.
Using the app, you can:
• Go Live – Tell your story as it happens with live video.
• Talk with Followers – See what people are saying about you and the topics you’re interested in.
• Stay in the Loop – Get posts from the people you follow and see trending stories in one place.
• Share Everywhere – Share updates across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, all from one app.
• Tell Your Story – Start conversations directly from your phone by posting updates, sharing photos or videos, or hosting a live Q&A.
Updating over the weekend to version 86 the latest edition of the celeb-only app fixes a bug that may have seen specific user’s status updates not posted, when using Mentions via an iPad.
Mentions is a FREE download, but, as previously detailed, requires you to manage a page or profile which already carries Facebook’s lusted after ‘verified’ blue tick.
