Tag ppl in status updates on FB
I found (via Google) that to tag someone in a FB post on TB, you have to log in via the internet, then from "more" menu, select desktop site.
When I try to tag someone in a status update, for instance gngracie, it lets me select that person by typing @gngracie, but then after I've selected the person, it adds another g at the beginning of the name (ggngracie), thereby removing the tag. It always adds the 1st letter and removes the tag. Am I missing something simple here? Is there a way to tag people in status updates?

I just downloaded Friendcaster for Facebook, free, excellent app. I will probably buy the Pro version. Easy photo and video uploads to albums, tagging etc...MUCH better than the Facebook app.There is no place like 127.0.0.1

I haven't used Friendcaster for a while so I don't know if I can tag ppl on the status. But on the native Facebook for Android app, as soon as I enter the first letter after @, it brings up a pulldown menu. It is strange that it is not working for you.
In the event that anyone else ever has this problem, I finally figured out a way to tag within the app, although it's a weird way! By selecting "input method > touch input" instead of using SwiftKey, the tag feature actually works. This is one of the weirdest and most frustrating little quirks that is driving me nuts! There's got to be a way to get it working properly in SK, but I'll be darned if I'm able to figure it out.
