Tagging In Facebook Status Messages - Social Media

I have often been asked as to how do you go about tagging people in Facebook status updates. If you want that your Facebook status updates be tagged to someone simply mention '@name of person'.

This is very similar to the Twitter function of '@replies'; the way we direct / mention someone in Twitter - similarly we do with the Facebook status updates. Once you key in the '@and name of person', you will observe the auto drop down name suggestions based on the alphabets you type.

This system at Facebook enables you to tag any pages / groups / communities / people that you are connected to via your Facebook. After you post the message with '@' the symbol of '@' will not appear in the message.
