Facebook new update may be working on adding a shortcut to tag a friend


A new hidden feature in facebook suggest that this social networking site is experimenting with a very new way to tagging a friend in fb comments.

Let’s recap : currently we type ‘@’ to mention anyone in the comment and then the person name.

But according the article published on thenextweb, the new feature on facebook which is deeply within the site, takes a different tack and introduces a new “Mention a friend” button to comments.

Clicking on the brings up feature, it will make you scroll through your friends list.

I can imagine, this will be very handy if we need to tag someone. Friends name momentarily escape us.

What you think about this feature. Currently this feature is in testing mode and their is no official information about when this feature will go live.


Nice feature! It will help us to go around easily.
