What is #FollowFriday?

What is #followfriday?

Have you seen a tweet including #FollowFriday (or #ff shortened) and a list of user names preceded by the @ symbol? This tradition was born spontaneously within the Twitter community to recommend your favorite tweeps to your followers. This portal counts all of these recommendations and computes a ranking of the most recommended Twitter users in the world.

When #followfriday started, it was really a way to do a few things:

  1. recognize your friends
  2. suggest that other people follow people you admire
  3. explain why those people are good to follow.

Here’s a tip though! Don’t just regurgitate your followers just because, it’s annoying. Use this as a tool to actually TELL people why you suggest them to others, why you follow them. Follow Twitter etiquette Tweeple, and you’ll become Twitterfied in no time!

I’m now addicted to http://www.followfriday.com because I don’t have to DO anything.
