How to make Follow Friday Easier
It’s Friday again! Which means it is time for you to take a look at your activity on Twitter and give a little love to those followers who made an impression on you this week. How do you do that? You give them a #FF, #FollowFriday recommendation.
What’s the easiest way to do this? Ever since Follow Friday Helper shut down, #FF has turned into Copy and Paste Friday. Here’s a few simple steps to make managing your #FF lists a bit easier.
1. Make a list: By making a list of handles that you wish to include in your #FF Tweet. Make sure to group handles by organizations, similar interests, specialties, etc. (ex: #GENJ).
2. Store a copy: Make sure the list is saved somewhere easily accessible to you (on a desktop, in notes on your phone, etc.)
3. Schedule, schedule, SCHEDULE!: Draft your tweet with the handles you intend to
include for that week’s #FF, and schedule using Hootsuite or another service. It’ll save you a lot of time and aggravation (Trust me on this).
