Mentions ‘ill-conceived’

22 Jul, 2014

In a five-section report Shatner reviews Mentions against the Facebook Pages Apps, comparing feeds, insights, posts and notifications. Shatner notes that Mentions forces him to follow a another celebrity. When the app suggests he follow George Takei he rolls his eyes and follows Robert Downey Jr. instead.

If this app is for celebrities, then why force them to follow another celebrity in order to set up this app?

He concludes:

I’m not quite sure why Facebook released this app. 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.
