    Is there any way to tag people in your Facebook status from your phone? My sister is still mad at me for talking her into the Trophy instead of the iPhone, and another bullet in her arsenal is that she can't tag people in her statuses, like people on iPhones can. I haven't been able to find a way, but I've missed some pretty simple features before.

    Thanks!

    Shucks... manually typing @[Person's Name] does not work. I wonder if the Facebook app would do it?

    I know it might seem fruitless, but if you have not voted already, perhaps you can vote for it here; it's a little better than just hoping.

    According to my sister, they can. Apparently, everyone at her work can do it. It just doesn't make sense that we can tag people in pictures, but not statuses. I would understand the other way around...

    Hopefully they add this kind of functionality in the next update. I want to be able to tag people in check ins too!

    Also,having Foursquare integrated into the OS would be sweet!

    I could have SWORN that we could tag people in check-ins. I wonder what I'm thinking of...

    Btw, even my WinMo 6.5 can do tag people in check-ins.

    Nah, that's regular picture tagging. What the Topic Creator wants is tagging a person in the status you make in the Me tile.

    We could just have the official app updated with the ability but the developers of the official app as lazy as heL.L. We should had gotten a new update when the Timeline was created, Apple and Google got one, I think even Rim, why no us?

    There is no official App for WP. Both the inbuilt experience and the 'Official' app are built by Microsoft.

    I think until WP gets more steam, thats how it will be and while Microsoft has updated the FB app from time to time, its not been enough to stay ahead of what Facebook has done with the iPhone and Android apps.

    You can tag people in check-ins using the Facebook app. I don't know why the Me tile check-in function doesn't allow tagging. That's one of the only reasons I still use the app.

    Ugh... I have the same problem. I have my girlfriend do the check-ins and then tag me on it from her Blackberry 9900 (So 2007). I love my phone but little things like this irritate me.

    You also cannot "Like" nor click on links inside a post's comments. I honestly can't recommend Windows Phone for heavy Facebook users. Nothing but frustrations there. The touch or mobile Web versions don't make up for this.

    I've noticed that, too. I thought this phone was supposed to be the ultimate Facebook phone (chat built in, news feed in the people hub/groups, etc.). Sadly, it lacks fairly basic functions that are found in the other two mobile OSes.

    Just make sure you select "Desktop version" as your Website preference in the IE Settings. Then just go to www.facebook.com and it will load the full page.

    Just type @ (at) followed by the name(s) you wanna tag on the comment section and a list matching the first letter(s) of whatever you've typed will show up. I've done this lots of time and it works like a charm.

    Hope that helps.
