Write your message as you usually would.. (for example:)
Come see me perform in
Here's where it gets fun - if you want to reference a specific event to which you have RSVPd on Facebook, type the @ symbol followed by the name of the event - you will see a drop down menu with choices - click the one you want and presto! a link appears! (It won't in here, but it will in your wall post, I promise.)
@The Sound of Music
(After your link appears you can keep typing and finish your message)
at Kitsap Forest Theater. The show opens Sunday - see you there!
Things to remember:
- Facebook is not Twitter - if you want to say "at" something, remember to type the word, since the @ symbol won't show up.
- You must be a fan of a page, have RSVPd to an event or be friends of a person for the @ process to work.
- When you use the @ symbol, your message will show up on the wall of the person, page or event in addition to whatever wall you are writing your message on, depending on its privacy settings. Sometimes the person or page moderator might delete this reference on their page, but it will still be on your wall and in the news feed, so your friends will see it.
- You can mention multiple people/pages/events in one wall post.
(Special P.S. for Facebook page administrators - be on the lookout for users tagging your page in their posts. If you use the Profanity Blocklist, users can get around it by tagging the page.)
