Create a link to a friend's Facebook profile right from your posts on Facebook. Tag friends in your posts so your other friends can click right through to them and see who you're talking about.



Time Required:

1 minute

Here's How:

  1. In the box where you would type your post, type the @ sign followed immediately by the person's name (example: @nick).
  2. As you type the person's name a drop down box will appear with friend's names that are similar. Choose the person you want to link to in your post from the box.
  1. Continue writing the rest of your post the way you normally would.
  2. After adding the post to your page, you and everyone else will be able to click on it and go to the other person's profile.
