Thursday, January 20, 2011 releases User Reviews

So far the #followfriday tradition has allowed us to recommend users every Friday. However, these recommendations are lost in time like tears in the rain.

Today we present FollowFriday Reviews which allows your reviews to live on. will become a users directory where you can check out a prospective user before following. Between all of us we can enrich the profiles of our preferred tweeps so that future visitors to these profiles can learn more about what they tweet and how they do it.

To make a review is very simple, you only have to visit their profiles on and answer the question “Why should I follow @username?”.

This new functionality should not be used to offend, insult or make destructive comments. With the options “Was this review helpful?” you can provide us with feedback about if a review has been useful or not or if it is spam.

2nd #FollowFriday Anniversary

Yesterday, It was exactly two years since @micah wrote the tweet that ignited the most popular tradition on Twitter.

I am starting Follow Fridays. Every Friday, suggest a person to follow, and everyone follow him/her. Today its @fancyjeffrey & @w1redone.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Later @myklroventine proposed the hashtag:

@micah Great idea! You need a hashtag for that - #followfridaysless than a minute ago via web

From here, there have never been a Friday without #followfriday and the phenomenon doesn't stop growing, even looking like noise for many. Precisely for this, was created to promote good habits to recommend users on twitter and to convert all that "noise" in useful information with rankings and tools like MyFF or the users search engine.
