Fbook jocking Twitter




Facebook just introduced the ability to tag your friends in status updates. What makes this really interesting though is how you tag people: Using the @ symbol. Facebook has just turned on their own version of Twitter’s @Mentions feature that will be rolled out over the next few weeks.

Here is Facebook engineer Tom Occhino’s explanation of the new feature:

Now, when you are writing a status update and want to add a friend’s name to something you are posting, just include the “@” symbol beforehand. As you type the name of what you would like to reference, a drop-down menu will appear that allows you to choose from your list of friends and other connections, including groups, events, applications and Pages. Soon, you’ll be able to tag friends from applications as well. The “@” symbol will not be displayed in the published status update or post after you’ve added your tags.


Friends you tag in your status updates will receive a notification and a Wall post linking them to your post. They also will have the option to remove tags of themselves from your posts. We hope that tagging your status updates and others posts from the Publisher will enable you to share in a more meaningful and engaging way, and connect with even more people. We’re rolling this feature out over the course of the next few weeks, so you may not see the new feature just yet.


This sounds like jocking to me since alot of people left fbook for twitter..First they was copying myspace now they after twitter? smh they might as well just become MyTwitFace like the rumors have it lol

What inspired me is that I've been growing my beard since 2012 and it grows but it didn't have that feel or that look I wanted.. it was rough and hard to manage..So I searched the Internet for products and found some but they didn't cater to my type of hair to be honest.. It was more for people with straight hair which my hair isn't..so I talked to my mom about helping me make my own stuff because she makes organic products..So about May 2014 I started experimenting and came up with something to use for myself but it wasn't until fall 2014 that I decided to sell it...
