As Tumblr evolves from blog network to modern social network, it is today adding a long-awaited feature: user mentions. When you type an @ symbol into Tumblrs compose screen, a new field auto-populates a list of usernames so you can directly refer to specific profiles when you write about them. The feature isnt a major addition to the site, but is indicative of Tumblrs increasingly contextual user experience. What was once a quick way to post text and photo posts is now a social network with a notifications page, user profiles you can link to, and a news feed many media publications leverage to spread news.
