    1. Hi Elyse Liptak,
      Thanks for coming.
      I just duplicated your issue and try to tag my friend name in the status update and comment. Use the @ before the friend name (eg. type @elypse) or type the first letter of the friend name using the capital letter at least 5 letters (eg. type Elypse) and you should see the drop down option of the most likely name and then tap the one you wish to tag with.
      Hope this helps :)
