William Shatner and Facebook Mentions

July 23rd, 2014

For reference: App Constellations.

First, William Shatner has a Tumblog. I’m cool with this.

Second, he wrote about Facebook Mentions — yet another app from Facebook specifically created to help “celebrities” with managing their Facebook accounts.

He writes:

I’m not quite sure why Facebook released this app for “celebrities”. It seems to be ill conceived. I will probably use it to post to my Facebook when I’m on my phone but it doesn’t allow for mail or groups. I will continue to use my regular Facebook App as well as the Pages app.

Since only select people get access to this app I’m glad he took the time to jot down his thoughts and I think his review is very good. In fact, I would have disliked the same things he did.

Man, Facebook is managing a lot of apps.
