Facebook adds Status Update Tagging

1 minute read

Facebook has just launched a new feature which is set to change the way we post and interact drastically.

One of Facebook’s most innovative and useful features is phototagging. Now they are bringing this functionality to posts and status updates so you can tag friends in your messages as you would with @replies on Twitter.

On Twitter this is made possible through the typing of a username or through the reply button; on Facebook you can search through your friends and add them directly.

The consequence of this change for page admins is that fans won’t have to visit your page to make a comment or to interact with your brand and you can now tag events, groups and people in your status updates.
