As we were mentioning in a tweet, today we were thinking to not just #ff or #FollowFriday our tweeps but to make a list on our blog. This list is NOT all-inclusive, but it contains some of the friends on twitter we interact the most (at least in the past week). Many of them are included on the Electrical – Lighting, and Trade Building twitter lists.
For those who don’t know, FF is FollowFriday, which started initially as a hashtag on twitter for recommending the people you like, you want others to follow, you want your friends to know, or you just recently interacted with. Of course, as with every hashtag on twitter, the value of #FF and #FollowFriday has been diluted when many people tweet 30-40 statuses with such recommendations, each tweet having 7-8 people they recommend.
Anyways, for us at @SparksDirect, we still use this as a means to either remember some people or to recommend some – not as “a business recommending a business”, but a person in the social media recommending another friend also in the social media. Therefore, the list below simply means that we like these guys / gals and we want to remember them on Friday, November the 4th 2011.
