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

Interact with Others from Status Updates
Comment on, share, follow, or repost a status update by clicking any of these commands in the footer of the update (yours or others'). This is a fun way to engage with other community members.
Limit Your Status Update to a Specific Group
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/or followers of that group will see the update in their attention streams. If the overview page of the group includes the Recent Activity widget, the status update will be displayed there as well.
Delete 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. You can also 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.
See Who Liked Your Status Update
Click the number next to Like in your status update to see the people who liked it.
Use Tags in Your Status Updates
Insert one or more tag(s) 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 on tagging, see Using Tags.
Filter by Status Updates
Filter any of your attention streams by selecting Filter > Status Updates.
See Someone Else's 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 box. Click on the person's name to go to their profile page, then click Activity > Status Updates.
