After making hundreds of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the second half of 2010 and beginning of 2011, it finally dawned on us to integrate our #FF efforts into this nifty WordPress.com weblog we contribute to several times each week.
Last week’s feature focused on a global leader in delivering innovation in communications, information and entertainment – Verizon – and was so well received that we are able to justify making a continuing “trend” out of our weekly #FollowFriday tweets finding a more glorified home here on our WordPress weblog.
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @facebook, but also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the seventy two Twitter accounts @facebook is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of a social utility that helps people communicate more efficiently with their friends, family and coworkers.
Yep. We just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “a social utility that helps people communicate more efficiently with their friends, family and coworkers” in the same sentence.

@facebook: Giving people the power to share and make the world more open and connected
We didn't get the memo about shutting down, so we'll keep working away. We aren't going anywhere; we're just getting started.
