Facebook is trying to imitating like Twitter. Facebook have introduced the most interesting and useful feature in the Facebook status update like what we can do in Twitter status updates. Yesh now we can tag our friends in the Facebook status. The most interesting and useful feature on Facebook is tagging, which gives you the ability to identify and reference people in photos, videos and notes. Now this tagging feature is introduced in the status updates and other posts from the Publisher. It's another way to let people know who and what you're talking about. Twitter is famous for this tagging in status updates. Now we can enjoy this feature in the Facebook also. Cool.

Normally we all are often update our status to reflect our thoughts and feelings, or to mention things we feel like sharing. 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.
