If there was a list of few sites that keeps rolling out updates every sunset, Facebook would top such a list. Tagging a friend/page in your status just got better.
Earlier, whenever you had to tag a friend, you had to type ‘@’ followed by your friend’s name. Now, It got easier. You can tag your friend in a status without typing the ‘@’ symbol. Here’s a screenshot:
The good, bad and the ugly.
What’s good: Things get easier. Relatively useful for the facebook newbies.
What’s bad: Might take quite some time for the people who have already been using this feature extensively.
What’s ugly: Suppose, I type:
After April comes May, May you have a nice day.
And what I get is a drop down list with my friend Mayank Jain featuring there. It’s quite annoying, at times.
Note: this is applicable to tagging people in comments as well.
