    When I first started using it, I was able to tag friends in comments and status updates just by starting to type their NAME. Then I had to use the @ symbol before the name. Now it won't tag friends at ALL (besides in pics) in any posts, status updates, or comments!
    This is VERY frustrating, & I have been searching for an answer for 4 & 1/2 hours!
    I just want to tag friends' names in my comments or posts.
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times and no help.

    It is now August '14 and nobody else had an answer to this?
    I am having this same problem now but it just started for me.
    I can even tag people who aren't in my friends list if I am on my laptop but I can't tag certain people who are in my friends list while I am using the facebook app on my Samsung Galaxy S3. At first I thought it was because of some settings that I had been tinkering around with but since I can tag pretty much anybody in the internet universe while I am on my computer (no settings changed), I think it may be the Facebook app having fits.
    I hope it resolves soon.
    Best of luck to you ^original poster "peacebaby914"

    It's probably a Facebook app issue.. I have an issue after their last update too.. Mine is a video player problem.

    Try going into manage apps, find Facebook (probably in downloaded) clear the cache and force stop the app.. Then try again.. If its stil happening I'd submit a bug report..

    For such a large company, Facebook has a terrible app.. It's getting better.. But still lousy
