Much the same as most Social Media platforms, when you're replying, the tag (which is the @ symbol) links the person that you tagged. The link is connected to their account profile. This originated with Twitter, but is the same for Facebook, etc.

But to try answer your question: I would tag you by doing this: @Mike Rohrbach

Note: Your question and my answer here, is in the Discussion Forum ... "Mike Rohrbach replied to the topic 'Tagging People' in the forum" ...
so tagging doesn't work quite the same here in the Forum area. The tagging feature --as described in the original description-- is primarily intended for the Community feed, i.e. posting under the upper right menu item labeled as Community: incubator.org/community )

As I just implied in my suggestion to you, we are working with novices to experts in general and in social media. This description, for instance, needs to be somewhere in the help menu so the user can search on the explanation. What is it, what does it do for you and how will it help you in the future.
