Facebook @ tagging in comments

When you start typing someone's name preceded by an '@' symbol in a status update on Facebook, it prompts you to tag that person in your post. The name will become an automatic link, and he or she will know that they were tagged in your post.

Now, they are expanding this feature.

When the update rolls out to you, you will be able to tag your friends in comments too. So they will know that you were talking about them. Simply type in the '@' symbol and start typing a name. A list will pop down, prompting you with names. Click one and the name will be entered as a link.

This is, of course entirely optional.
