New Feature: Introducing Tagging and Mentions in Posts on Goodwall!

We're excited to announce two new features on Goodwall - tagging and mentions! Now you can tag and mention your friends as you post updates, share experiences, and talk about your ideas!

Here at Goodwall, we’re always working on ways to improve your experience. A few months ago, we introduced Goodwall posts, allowing you to share ideas, submit your thoughts, ask questions, and highlight your achievements.

Today, we’re excited to announce that we have released Tagging and Mentions in Goodwall posts! 🎉

Now, you can share your experiences by tagging your friends in posts or mentioning them in your post description.
