William Shatner’s Not A Fan Of Facebook’s Celeb App, Mentions

Not for the first time, William Shatner found himself embarking upon a brave mission into the unknown. His destination this time? Facebook’s trial of the Mentions app, designed to help the famous super-followed keep on top of their social media presence.

Shatner’s lengthy review of the app ends with the conclusion that it’s not hugely useful for the celebs it targets, saying: “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.” [Tumblr via Slashgear]
