    On android you just type the @symbol and start typing the name of the person you want to mention. :-)

  • Hmm

    Justin, your explanation was very thorough, appreciate, I have Ipad 3 and Iphone 4 and I cannot @mention to people commenting on my photos. I have tried, my husband has and I do not get pop up at bottom of screen, it goes directly to my page. I have searched and searched for some answers on net to no avail and want to acknowledge those who have acknowledged me. Thank you
