We recently wrote an article on using Twitter and figuring out if it was right for you. Well, your decisions might change since a few days ago Facebook added a new feature. If you are familiar with the @ reply feature in Twitter, you'll be happy or angry to know that Facebook has enabled that ability as well. Now what does this mean.

Now when you pick your friends name, they will be notified that they've been tagged in this status update. That's basically how Twitter works.
