Facebook Mentions are now Live

September 14, 2009

In an update to my post from last week (Facebook Twitterizes) Facebook “mentions” are now officially live.  The system is quite simple.

When you post a status update you type in the “@” and a drop down list appears with all your friends, pages, etc.  You can type in the name or scroll until you find the recipient  you are looking for.  The recipient will receive a notification when they log in.

Remember, Facebook friends, pages groups and events can be mentioned.

It will be interesting to see how the addition is liked by users; I think people will love it.  It makes conversation much easier in the general feed.
