It's no different than using a slash or spoiler quotes. Which 80% of GAf has done at some time.


Hah! Now the finger is pointing back at you? Not so high and mighty now!

I do not avoid women, GAF, but I do deny them my essence.

It can be a sensible way to add context to your communication, and it makes sense to people. It isn't clever anymore, but there was a time it was.

I don't have a problem with it.

Pretty much.

I remember 10+ years ago when it was cool to put stuff in tags like that.

I just checked to see if using the Google Plus method of adding a + before a name to reference someone works on Facebook, and it does. It starts searching names as soon as you type the first letter, instead of after a few letters as it usually does. Was this added after Google Plus or has it been there for a while?

When it first started letting you tag other people's names, it worked with an @ symbol. They probably added + after G+ started using it.

So you can make a little joke or express an idea without having to form an actual sentence that makes sense in the context of the conversation. #welcometotheinterent #youcouldhavefiguredthisoutyourself
