@kc_kreative Hello Kristy,
I have been lazy with #FF lately, but I used to do it almost every week. To me, it was a way to acknowledge the folks I had interacted with during the week, who’s post I thought was insightful, or a new discovery, i.e. a blog I wasn’t aware of but that posts awesome content.
For example, when attending a conference on the Tuesday and Wednesday, you connect with new peoples, so I would do a special #FF for that conference and mention those new found friends made a few days earlier.
Indeed, it’s a personal choice, and I don’t RT when people mention me. However, I have found #FF useful when folks I trust take the time to single out like-minded tweeps. I now follow many of them, so it’s an interesting way to find interesting people on Twitter.
