The team at Enhansoft, back in 2014, decided that we should help promote the Configuration Manager (MEMCM/SCCM/ConfigMgr) community by posting monthly “Follow Friday” (#FF) tweets. I also did my part, in promoting the community, whenever I was asked to give presentations. At the end of all of my slide decks, I always listed who to follow on Twitter for that particular topic. Unfortunately, due to space constraints, there was only room for a handful of people. Anyone that I mentioned in my slide decks, however, also made it onto our #FF tweet list!
What is Follow Friday?
The idea behind a #FF tweet is to recommend to your followers someone else they should be following. It could be a person or an organization. Not only should you point to a specific account, but it is nice to say why you are recommending others to follow them too. This way everyone understands why they should be following someone else. If you want to know more about the history of “Follow Friday,” there are many articles out there, but here is one blog post that I like on the subject.
What Are the Hashtags for Follow Friday?
There are basically two hashtags for “Follow Friday.” The long-form #FollowFriday and the short-form #FF. Most often, we use the short-form.
As I mentioned earlier, Enhansoft has posted monthly #FF tweets for a while now. Sometimes we get asked for a list of who we recommended in the past, so I decided to put this information together for you and list all of the tweets going back to 2014. Keep in mind that the reasons for the recommendation may have changed since these tweets were originally posted, but I think this information is still helpful.
