Facebook Mentions

Facebook has launched a new app, called Mentions, aimed at public figures. It apparently allows them to discover and join conversations Facebookers are having about them on the social network. Which could be a disaster.

Currently only available to famous people with verified accounts in the US who own iPhones, amongst the musicians using the app at launch are Ed Sheeran, Mariah Carey, Austin Mahone and Outkast’s Big Boi.

The app will come to other countries over the next few months, apparently. If you want to try it out, or just look at some screenshots, click here.
