What's your take on Follow Friday?

Follow Friday on Twitter was conceived as an opportunity for tweeple to recommend someone whose tweets they admire -- especially if the person is new to Twitter. Unfortunately, some tweeps have used Follow Friday for a variety of different reasons which have become annoying to others.

So I'm asking for your opinion:

Do you follow the people recommended on Follow Friday and want the tradition to continue?

Do you appreciate being recommended on Follow Friday and support its continued use?

Do you think Follow Friday is abused and would like to see it end?

Leave a message to this post and I will share the results on Twitter.

Thanks most kindly,
