Tagging in Private Conversations

    What is the use of tagging in PM's?
    Because a hyperlink comes but I wonder does a message goes to him/her or not?

    I think the code to display the links runs overall, in conversations without you it cannot generate alerts. It also does not generate alerts if you get tagged in a forum you cannot access.
    I tagged you in a conversation (not including you) to test this.

    So I think use of tagging in conversation is that we can invite upto 3 members, so when to refer to someone from invitees we can use it?

    Just a quick way to link to a members profile.
