Tag friends in status says Facebook
Facebook has become like an addiction for many as it proves to be a very convenient way to keep in touch and get the entire gossip quotient through a friend’s status. Facebook now comes up with a feature wherein users can tag their friends in status updates, reveals the official Facebook Blog.
Tagging is something Facebook is known for and now one can take this feature to a more enhanced level and tag people in their status. All the user has to do is include the ‘@’ symbol beforehand.
Once the ‘@’ symbol has been added, the user will see a drop down menu which will suggest names whom the user wants to tag, very similar to the process of tagging a friend in a photo. But now this menu will also include other options such as groups, events, applications and pages.
In due course, the Facebook team plans to allow users to tag their friends through applications as well. The ‘@’ symbol serves technical purposes and will not show once the status has been published.
Now all the social networking butterflies can try out this new feature.
