Facebook has launched a new app called mentions that is very exclusive. In fact, we normal folk can't get our hands-on the app at all right now. The Mentions app is aimed only at actors, musicians, and other influencers and it is designed to help them discover and join conversations on Facebook.
Facebook only allows people who are verified public figures to get their hands-on the app and it is designed to display mentions to let the famous person know what the public is saying about them. Mentions also gives tools to make status updates, post photos, and videos like the normal Facebook app.
Another big feature for the famous person is the ability to host live Q&A session from within the app right from their iPhone. Facebook does have plans to make mentions more widely available in the future.
