On any given Friday, thousands upon thousands (maybe even millions) of Twitter users enter the hashtag #FollowFriday (or #FF), followed by one or more “mentions.” While you don’t really need to know much about Twitter, hashtags or mentions (foreign terms to anyone unfamiliar with Tweeting), you might be interested in the concept of FollowFriday. The idea is for users to share the names of other “interesting people” that they follow and think you should too. These recommendations serve as positive comment cards for the digitally inclined.
FollowFriday is a fantastic concept and I have decided to free it of it’s Twitter chains, or at least “borrow.” Here at JumpstartMyPC.com, we try to provide you with any information that helps you get the most out of your computer and we often do this in the form of reviews, how-to’s and links within our articles. In some cases, the site, person or service that we want to share doesn’t really lend itself to a full article, so we will use this FollowFriday concept as a way of highlighting the interesting people, places and things that you should know about or be following yourself.
