After making dozens of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first month of 2011, our staff shows no sign of slowing down when it comes to integrating our weekly #FF tweets into this nifty WordPress.com weblog.
Last week’s feature focused on the number one network in the United States – FOX – and was so well received by our readers that we would have to be crazy not to continue this weekly “trend” of blog-supported, fun and factual tweets.
Now, onto the good stuff!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @google, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the three hundred twenty-seven Twitter accounts @google is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of a company whose mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “a company whose mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful” in the same sentence.

More about Google:
Beginning in 1996, Stanford University graduate students Larry Page and Sergey Brin built a search engine called “BackRub” that used links to determine the importance of individual web pages. By 1998 they had formalized their work, creating the company you know today as Google.
