Facebook Gets Twitter-Like @Reply Feature In Status Updates

Facebook logoFacebook seems to be moving more and more into the whole Twitter thing recently and now they just added yet another Twitter like feature: “@Replies” in your status updates.

It’s very simple. As you write your status update, you just hit “@” on your keyboard and you can start writing the name of the person you want to tag/mention and you can select them from a live-updated drop down list below your status update as you write.

Example: Facebook @ reply/mention twitter-like feature

The tagged user will receive a notice about being tagged, just like it happens with pictures etc.

As with most other tagging-related stuff within Facebook, the tagged user can of course remove himself from being tagged if he doesn’t want to be tagged in your status update.
