Status update tips and tricks

Status updates let you interact with others in the community. You can also delete your own updates, see who liked them, see other people's updates, and several other activities.

Interacting with others from status updates
Comment on, share, follow, or repost a status update by clicking any of these commands in the footer of yours or other user's update.
Limiting your status update to specific groups
Share your update with only a specific group by clicking Change beneath the status box, and then selecting the group before you post. When you post a status update to a group, only members and followers of that group can see the update in their attention streams. If the Activity page of the group includes Recent Activity tile, the status update is displayed there as well.
Deleting your status update
Delete your own update by going to your Inbox and clicking on the time stamp in the update (for example, "posted 2 hours ago"). From the permalink page, click Delete.
Alternatively, you can delete an update by going to your user profile and clicking Activity > Status Updates. From there, click the update's time stamp, and then Delete.
Seeing who liked your status update
Click the number next to Like in your status update to see the people who liked it.
Using tags in your status updates
Insert one or more tags in your update by preceding keywords with a hash or pound sign (#) so that you and others can find the update more easily later. For more information, see Using tags.
Filtering by status updates
Filter any of your attention streams by selecting Filter > Status Updates.
Seeing someone else status updates
Click a person's avatar or name from any of your attention streams, or search for the person from the People finder or Spotlight search. Click on the person's name to go to their profile page, and then click Activity > Status Updates.
