To be frank , many of the people who don’t even have a PC are also using Facebook through their mobile phones . Well , a common problem which is often faced by the mobile Facebook users is tagging friends in any comment or status . Usually , on PC , you can just use @ , and type the first 1 to 3 letters of your friends , and after that , all of your friends who name relates with those letters comes up in a drop down menu . You just have to select the person from the drop down menu , and your tagging is done .

    Interesting discovery Priyangshu, But I think it’s time consuming as you need to find the user ID of person by going to their profile and after that you can tag him/her. If you want to tag more than 1 person than it’s really a big headache.

      Well , to be frank , it will take some remarkable time to find out the profile ID of any of your friends but when you will be using FB on mobile & we already know the profile ID of the person whom you want to tag , then trick will be turned out as quite helpful . By the way , thanks for dropping your opinion out on here !

      hi! thanks for that info! Although it was a bit tasky looking for their profile IDs, still it was really helpful, especially the ‘graph’ thing if the profile or user id isn’t available and the person is already using his customized url or his username. Thanks a lot! :))
