Would mentioning someone absolutely anywhere notify them?

As in links with @ before the name. Is @apple24 getting her a "you have been mentioned" sort of notification as I post this? Would shy be notified for a comment or reply I write to anyone if it has @apple24 in it?

    • Why the "..." at the end? Is that bad, or super obvious in your opinion? lol

    • The... is just filler because my comment was too short

    • Isn't the minimum 4? Wouldn't one period be enough? (Not complaining. Just curious.)

  • Yep, she will have received the notification as soon as you posted your question.

  • yeah no matter where it is, except in messaging, that person will be notified. if you are willing to say that person's name in a comment without mentioning them, then remove the @ symbol.

  • Because that's her username. If you don't want her to be notified then don't put the @ sign in front of it.
