|Using a Jive Community / Getting Started|
Using @mention, you can alert people, places, and groups that you're talking about them.
When you create, or comment on, content in your community, you have the ability to @mention a person, place, or piece of content. You might say, "Trivia Night was a success for Team Chaos! @Trivia_Night_Group" or "@Joey_Ramone and @Johnny_Ramone, please check out my question @Why is the Submit form not working today?
When someone is @mentioned in a piece of content, a notification of the activity flows into their Inbox. Members and followers of groups you mention will be notified in their Following stream and in any other streams that are following that group.
