Facebook has made available its live streaming app called Mentions on iOS app to journalists with verified Facebook profiles or pages.

The iOS app was exclusive earlier only for the celebrities.

According to the Verge, only high-profile public figures like actors, athletes, musicians and politicians were earlier permitted to stream live video to the users through the Mentions app. The replays of the stream are available once the initial live stream was complete and Facebook also allows comments and likes alongside broadcasts like YouTube and Periscope.

Vadim Lavrusik, the product manager for Mentions, said that they want to make Facebook a better experience for journalists whether it is used for newsgathering or better connecting with their readers or to drive distribution to their content.
