Starting today, Facebook Mentions app will be available to public figures and journalists with verified profiles to live stream posts just to their followers. Facebook says this will allow them to engage their followers and interact with peers easily.
With Facebook Mentions, a journalist or public figure with a verified profile can stream or report live from the scene and even host a Q7A session. Facebook Mentions users can also see what topics are currently trending and check what people are saying about them or any particular topic.
Facebook Mentions allows users to choose their audience while sharing text, links, photos or something else. This means a particular post can only be shared only with followers.
Facebook Mentions app is now available from App Store for people with verified profile.
