Just got informed - now you can "tag your friends" on Facebook, just like you can reply directly to people on Twitter - by typing @nickname before your message! :woo:

Not sure how it works yet, as I haven't managed to try it, Facebook seems to be a bit faulty atm, but hope that it gives you some notifications or something! lmao

dunno, I don't think so. Or maybe? :confused:

I was just trying to update my status and suddendly that tiny box appeared saying something along the lines:

"Now you can respond to your friends on Facebook! Just put @nickname before the message" or something :confused:

I'm confused as to how this works.

This confusion has led to my face looking like this o.O

It may be because I'm stupid...

I don't know how it can be used other than to abuse someone:

"look how stupid @xxxxxx xxxxxx looks in that dress!"

etc, etc.

Isn't this just where if you type one of your friends' names into your status, it comes up as a link to their profile as opposed to just plain text? I saw a few of people do that yesterday. Either way, I can't really see much use for it.

The use is supposed to be to help nosey people even more

say you would normally put as your status

Mark and I got so drunk last night ergh

you can now make Mark a hyperlink with the @Mark and everoyne who wanted to know who you got drunk with can just click on it, to see who this drunken mark-friend really is.

Where as before if they really wanted to know they had to trawl through your friends/ recent wall posts/ pics and figure it out.
