The latest tool for social media strategies

Facebook developed a new app to help celebrities and athletes connect with their fans.

More than 800MM people follow celebrities and athletes on Facebook. According to Mark Zuckeberg’s company, 30% of its users read the news on the social network that works as a newspaper cover, where billions of interactions occur between public figures and users. With this growing trend in mind, on July of 2014, Facebook launched a new app exclusively for celebrities, athletes, musicians and actors to them boost the connection with their followers: Facebook Mentions. facebok_mentions_user Mentions allows celebrities to post their own updates, photos, videos and even start a Q&A from their smartphones. The most important feature is the possibility to follow every comment their fans make, that way they know what people are saying about them in real-time. The app also allows them to follow people of interest. facebook_mentions_user_2 Since Facebooks’ algorithm change, it’s important to use all of the social network’s own tools – like native videos – to increase posts reach. Also, the latest Facebook Mentions update includes the option of sharing photos and updates on other social media networks such as Twitter and Instagram.
