Tag your Facebook Fan Page, Group, or Events by using @Mentions
You can now tag your fave Pages, Friends, Events, and Groups in your Status Update using the "@" symbol.
It’s called @mentions and takes advantage of the fact that most of us are using Twitter and are used to typing @something now.
Useful to marketers especially who want to promote their Pages, Events, and Groups. I thought it only worked for people, so finding out today that it also works for the others is happy news to me! :) Making your pages, events and groups much more viral.. when people post their own updates and use the @mentions to reference the group/page/event, then all of their friends now have a link to it.
I also didn’t realize how many Facebook pages that Facebook teams actually update with news, so I’ve promptly now become a fan of each of them..
