thumbs up guyYou’re on Facebook, right? Chances are that you’re one of the over 300 million people who have set-up a virtual home on Facebook because it is a great place to keep up with family and friends, as well as connecting with businesses and groups of interest.

It is also a place filled with fascinating information – blog posts, videos, photos and news articles. Recently, I’ve been asked several times about the proper etiquette when sharing this information. As we all know, etiquette is a relative concept, but with the introduction of “mentions” (similar to tagging) on Facebook, it is now easier than ever to share the information and let the person who originally posted it know that you appreciated it.

Rather than explain how to do this in writing, I think it might be simpler to demonstrate how this works step-by-step.

Other than the fact that I’m in serious need of better lighting (long story),? please let me know in the comments below if this was helpful to you. How are you using, or do you expect to use, the new “mentions” feature on Facebook?


(This is the first time I’ve used this new screencasting software. It didn’t come out exactly the way I’d hoped, but it gets the job done. The good news is that it’s all up from here! Take a look at a few seconds of one of my earlier, and ill-fated, attempts.)
