How to Insert Friends names in Status updates and comments?

You can update your status in Facebook from Home and Profile page. If you want to include name of person whom you want to convey the message, then type @ first,followed by the name of person you want to include. You can get the names of your friends in dropdown that appears once you start punching in letters. You can include friends in comments also by using @.

When you include your friend in status update via @, then those friends will see it in their wall,but nobody can comment on that post in your friend's wall.One have to click 'View Post' to open the post and then can comment on that same post. But friends can comment on the same wall post in your profile.

You would get notifications like ' <your friend name> mentioned you in a comment/wall post'.
