To mention your friend in facebook, you just simply add “@” before username like “@anil” and it will be a link name like we did on twitter. But unfortunately you can’t do this on facebook mobile version. However, there is a trick i had discovered around to make it able to mention. As what i did on my last status via phone, you could see that i mentioned my friend just like picture above where it would be a link name that give him a notification.
Here are the steps to try:
* Click your friend profile that you would like to mention, watch the address bar you will find id number for example m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1922223056002&id;=1254846230&refid;=0, see the numbers after “id” that is your friend id. You can use it to mention with this trick “@[123456:] remember to give bracket after @ and : at the end of id number.
* However, sometimes you will find facebook.com/username instead of id number. And to peep the username id, click your friend profile picture and point out your navigation to address bar, the id number will visible and copy it as the trick above. You can mention with this trick while you go online on facebook mobile version.
