Earlier today, Facebook released its new “status tagging” feature to all users, a new way to tag friends, Pages, groups, and events in status updates much like mentions on @twitter work.
However, while status tagging is a powerful tool for users and Page administrators, Facebook hasn’t officially launched any new API’s for developers to take advantage of the feature. Last week, Andrew Huang, the product manager at Facebook responsible for status tagging, told us that while Facebook waiting to see how the feature plays out before they expand it, Facebook is thinking about how new Platform APIs could enable users to tag Facebook connections.
