FACEBOOK PAGE MENTIONS
You can add a mention of a Facebook page while composing a new post. To add mention, type the "@" symbol and start typing the first few letters of the Facebook page you would like to mention (the page will be hyperlinked once it's published to Facebook). As you type the page name, matching options will be displayed below the editor. Select the relevant page you would like to mention.

LinkedIn tagging or mentioning works uniquely compared to other channels. You can mention company pages as well as personal profiles (please note, personal profiles' mentions can be added as long as they are following any of your pages).
