WebProNews has investigated the origins of the popular #FollowFriday trend on Twitter. It began over 4 months ago with a man named Micah Baldwin, and snowballed from there. Do you use #FollowFriday on Twitter? Let us know.

Micah and others interviewed in the above clip think that a lot of people are missing the point of #FollowFriday, which, is a way to show friends other people they could be following that would interest them.

Well, that’s how most people use it, but they don’t include the "Why," which is really how the hashtag becomes more effective and useful. If a reason to follow someone is laid out for you, you are more likely going to actually follow that person.

Would you agree with this mentality? Share your thoughts.
