I’m writing this post late on Thursday evening, and my thoughts are already turning to one of my tasks for tomorrow morning – sending out my #ff mentions. But, then that got me thinking…is this just another social media ‘ritual’ that started out as a good way to ‘recommend’ people and is now just a way of clogging up our timelines.
I have been guilty of sending out #ff mentions religiously but as of today I will no longer be doing that.
Instead, I am going to make my #ff mentions real and more meaningful. So rather than compose a tweet with a list of @users I am going to select a few and take time to make the tweet count.
Take a look at the examples below…what one stands out most to you?
#ff My great friend and mentor @goshensai and an awesome trance vocalist
#ff @joebloggs @joebloggs1 @joebloggs2 @etc @etc
So, before you go into the #ff mode,
Stop, choose some special followers and send a meaningful mention.
What are your thoughts on Twitter #FF’s, do you do them or not? Let’s hear your thoughts.
