Today, Facebook added a new way of tagging. Users are now able to use tags within their statuses. As the number of social network sites grow, Facebook must have also thought there’s always room for improvement. This new feature can be used to tag your friends, groups, applications, pages, etc.
But what’s the point? Well, it’s all about staying connected. Now being more similar to Twitter, Facebook users have an easier way of connecting themselves to others. Say you’ve just updated your blog and you want to let some people know… Well, update your Facebook status with your blog’s URL and tag away. The people you tag will get notifications and will most likely be more inclined to check out your blog.
How’s it work? When you are typing in a new status, include ‘@’ and begin entering the name of whatever you’d like to tag. A drop-down menu will appear and you’ll be able to select what/who you’d like to tag. Additionally, you can tag multiple friends, groups, applications, pages, etc in one status.
What do you think? Will you use this new Facebook feature to promote your stories, blogs, etc?
