What is Facebook Mentions?

Facebook Mentions is a social networking app specifically for Facebook pages and profiles that are verified with the blue check by Facebook. 

Facebook Mentions functions much like the regular Facebook app, allowing verified users to browse feeds, post updates and respond to others, but has focused features for high profile figures to better interact with fan and followers, as well as to check trending topics or people.

Facebook Mentions users are able to scroll through their newsfeed, taking a look at updates from those they follow on the platform, as well as interacting with newsfeed posts. Users with verified profiles are able to use the “Mentions.” feature to see who’s talking about them and what they’re talking about. 

It includes news features, entertainment magazines, digital outlets, or simply a Facebook fan giving a shout out. The mentions feature makes it much easier for high profile Facebook members to directly interact with fans and followers, as well as to monitor any social activity related to themselves.

The Facebook Mentions notification stream contains much more than the regular Facebook app. In addition to the types of notifications regular users receive, verified profiles using Facebook Mentions will see statistics about post interactions, summaries of interactions and profile activity, as well as trending reports that involve themselves.

Facebook Mentions users have the ability to start a live Q&A session with fans, when users open a new post.

Facebook combines a multitude of premium features, wrapped into a handy mobile app, for public figures and high profile celebrities, athletes, musicians, and others of note, to check in and interact with their fans on-the-go.

Is Facebook Mentions safe for my kids?

Facebook Mentions is safe for kids, but is useless if they don't have a verified Facebook profile. Facebook Mentions is an app tailored specifically for those profiles and pages possessing the blue verified check on Facebook, which are typically held by public figures. 

Parents with a kid who is verified may want to pay attention to the live streaming feature. Facebook Mentions users have the ability to easily stream live content and coverage by using the Facebook Live feature within the app. 

With Facebook Live, verified profile users can bring their fans along on the red carpet, into panel discussions at conventions, backstage at shows or anywhere they wish to share live content with fans.

This app is not necessary for the average kid or teen.
