I want to say in my facebook status update that I heard so-and-so things from my friend "Chuck Turnbull". And I want the text of "Chuck Turnbull" to appear as a link to his profile. How do I do this?

In the status update type @ followed by the freinds name and then select them from the list:

Just type an @ as part of your status update followed by your friend's name. Facebook will prompt you with a list of suggestions and when you click on one the @ will be removed and a link to your friend will be in its place.
