So I know you’ve all seen people tagging their friends in a Facebook post with only their first name. In the past, when you wanted to mention someone in a Facebook status update, one would have to use the “@” symbol and the entire name of the selected friend would show up in the status update.
Facebook recently enhanced this feature so that one doesn’t need the type the “@” symbol and one’s friend’s full name doesn’t have to show up.
If you want to tag your friend in a status update without mentioning their last name, simply tag them, then delete their last name.
Click Share & vuala! It’s that simple.
