  • by

How to implement Facebook style tag friends in your status or update box. It is great feature to adding friends start with @ symbol. I had tried this with Jquery, Ajax and PHP, it’s simple.

I would like to use a facebook style friend tagger on an application that is used to create blog posts. If a user enters @ sign and then starts entering a friend’s name (from a user table) then the application will lookup and then user will select the name from a list. Upon selection of the name it will send an email mentioning that you have been tagged in the blog post xyz etc.

  `fname` varchar(25) DEFAULT NULL,
  `lname` varchar(25) DEFAULT NULL,

  `img` varchar(50) DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`uid`)

Dumping data for table `user_data`

INSERT INTO `user_data` (`uid`, `fname`, `lname`, `country`, `img`) VALUES
(1, 'Ram', NULL, 'india', 'ram.jpg'),
