Comment (by InterMike):

 I don't really view it as a "Facebook-thing", though. I just view it as
 being more convenient, and resulting in one less unnecessary redirect and
 page load, just to comment on someone's profile that you're already on.
 Commenting on Facebook is pretty easy and straight forward - just find
 what you want to comment on, and comment under it - no redirecting to
 another page just to comment on it.

 I think the groups are fine. It makes sense for all actions to take place
 on that page you want to perform those actions on. It would be just as
 silly to be redirected all over the site just to post a comment on a
 bbPress forum topic, when you're already on the forum topic itself. An
 @mention for groups wouldn't be a good idea, I don't think - it'd plague
 the site full of misspelled @mentions for groups, and make you look up
 what the @mention was for every group, and it would take more focus off of
 visiting the group, where all group activities and actions should taken
