Since few days, the trick to tag Facebook page or profile isn't working anymore but somehow, Facebook had forgotten to patch on mobile site. The same code which was working before on desktop site is now working in mobile site of Facebook. I thought of updating the existing post but later, I guessed that it would be helpful for more people if I post a new article of the trick.
