What does basically "link" below question/answer do ?

For me - just page is being refreshed. It gives tool-tip as"Permalink to this question/answer". Actually I am not getting the function of this. Would someone please explain this ?

Why there isn't a facility like, Hey Check out - this is new cool feature available & demo video or something like that demonstrating it. While adding tags to this question, I found one more addition to StackOverflow, tag automatically shows up after typing. I came to know about this feature, After I used it. Isn't there something like, hey just watchout here - new cool/awesome feature now & use it like this. new/Blog is pretty uncool to get updates about new features added suddenly.

You can copy this link and post it somewhere else. Link below the answer gives a handy way to have a link to particular answer and not all answers, when there are many
