Facebook’s New Musician-and-Fan Interaction Gambit

Facebook has come up with a new tool that will let musicians (well, any celebrities) interact with their fans.  Facebook Mentions (iOS only for now) is described as “a new app for actors, athletes, musicians and other influencers to discover and join conversations on Facebook.”

Celebs can use the app to see what their fans are saying about them.  From that feed, they can interact directly with the people who are saying stuff.
