Welcome to Service – The Action Form of Love
If you tweet – that is – if you are a member of the phenomenally popular social media community, Twitter, you probably know today is something called “Follow Friday”.
If you’re not a member of Twitter, Follow Friday is where you recommend one of your followers to the rest of your followers. This is part of the incredible networking aspect of Twitter and can really help people of similar interests find each other.
A typical Follow Friday introduces the person you want to shout out by saying something like, “@username is worth following because she posts great news articles” and then is followed with the hashtag #followfriday.
So, today’s challenge is, as always, small and simple.
While many of us recommend the people with hundreds or thousands of followers, find one or two of your followers who have less – and then recommend them. By doing this, you’re creating a stronger bond and helping out the little guy.
Thanks for reading today’s challenge! Feel free to retweet, stumble, dig and pass on the challenge.
And remember, Service is the Action Form of Love.
