Is there a way to do this?

On Facebook, if I want to notify someone of a post I make, I can type, as an example, @XFactor. The @ symbol creates a notification to, in this case, XFactor.

I thought of this because I wanted to draw Donald Sutherland to a Turkey Thread. Thought I'd ask in case I was missing something all these years. (In the meantime, I'll PM Donald.)

Don't think there's a way to really tag folks in vBulletin but the best people to ask are probably the admins, CC and RedAkston.

I did not realize that on fb. Are you saying that you do not have to tag someone and write @whoever alerts them to your fb post?

I would like that as sometimes I want someone to read something yet I do not want to officially tag someone and have it go to their timeline.

Yes. When you type @ and start typing your Friend's name, choices will pop up for you to select. No space after @. The @ will disappear when you select the name.
