#followfriday
   

 

 

On the Tutorials page I have included some of my thoughts on introductions to people and lately I have been joining in with the #followfriday convention based on a brilliant idea that occurred to Micah Baldwin, as documented at:  http://learntoduck.com/micah/follow-friday

 
Like all Twitter hashtags, the addition of this to a tweet to the beginning or end of a tweet in which you @name specific people, ensures that anyone looking for people worth following in the eyes of others can be found conveniently gathered together at http://www.search.twitter.com by putting 'followfriday' in the search slot (without the apostrophes of course!). When someone you are already following tweets a #followfriday recommendation you can, of course, simply click on the @names contained in the tweet to check out the profile pages of those recommended.

Some people elect to tweet a series of names without explanation, others group names by country or profession and a few make an individual recommendation with information about the person in question.

The #followfriday convention means that everyone is recommending people to one another at the same time and the volume of tweets can peak extraordinarily but it's only a short-term phenomenon each week and, although some grumpy individuals may un-follow one because of it, they will quickly be replaced by more sociable people :-)

Like most Twitter conventions #followfriday now has it's own website:
http://topfollowfriday.com/ Where the most recommended people each week are listed, along with relevant information.

Having said all that, it is not my intention to disturb anyone so I will be creating less #followfriday tweets some weeks than others and may even create a page of recommendations on this site and link to it if time permits.

   
   
  If you have, or know of, a Twitter-related application that you think I should include here, feel free to tweet me about it! @linnetwoods
