Facebook Adds @ Replies a la Twitter
Monday, September 14, 2009
Rolling out over the next few weeks, the new Facebook tagging feature lets you alert someone to your post by writing @ followed by their name. As you type, the name appears from a drop down menu for you to select. Lots of recent updates with Facebook including the social networking site taking strides in real time search with Facebook Lite (lite.facebook.com) a slimmed-down version of the old site.


It appears as though Facebook is not taking the success of Twitter's popularity lightly. Having said that Facebook has always been one to do its own thing. They're not necessarily trying to compete directly with Twitter. I think that they'e realized that there are some pretty cool benefits for users of Twitter in terms of real-time search and the like. While Twitter is a micro-blogging service, Facebook provides more of a total social networking environment for users to hang out and find information about their friends, family and co-workers.

Internet speed is changing how we do everything. Facebook is quick to realize this and is trying to provide their users on a global basis the ability to efficiently and effectively use their service. The fact is incorporating the @ feature is the most Twitter-like feature that Facebook has rolled out as of yet.

Facebook vs. Twitter? I'm not so sure. You can enjoy a lot more than 140 characters on Facebook.
