    If you want to tag someone (like you might on Facebook) to alert them to your post you just need to add the @ sign immediately before their name and they will get a notification.

    For example I'm going to tag Donald and Marshe below:

    @Donald
    @marshe

    Hup I got it at the time you did, but didn't quite undeerstand it or should say why.
    But now after reading about tagging it makes sense

    Well, maybe it was because I tagged myself, but I didn't get any sort of notification.
    In short...... I am no wiser! LOL

    I did tag some friends in another post also, so I'll see what kind of feedback I receive.

    It turns out that the friends that I tagged DID get notified in some manner, although I don't have the details on how.
    I was unaware of this ability until very recently. I like it!!
