Finding People To Follow (Thanks to Google)

Google pretty much owns the web and they are expanding to different areas every day. So, what does the team have to bring us now? Well, as most know “Twitter” is becoming a thing of everyday life; finding people to follow is getting harder and harder. Well, that’s where Google comes in.

Google brewed up a nice little tool. This tool is called Follow Finder. This simple tool allows you to enter your username and it will provide you with a list of tweets or accounts that might interest you. The main problem with this tool is that it gives results that would be considered old; I’m getting results that are over a day old. Also, some of the accounts that are recommended to me are no where near what interests me, but I guess that is why its still part of the “labs”.

Hopefully Google will perfect this tool sometime in the future, but till then we have to use it for what it is worth. So, have you used the follow finder? How has it been working for you? Good? Bad? Also, if you know an alternative to this tool, feel free to post it.

Why another blog about forums? Great question, we are just a couple of forum owners who have built ours forums from the ground-up. We just wanted a blog for real life forum owners, with real life experiences.

    I don't use anything until it makes it out of the Labs. And even then, it might fail. *ahem*buzz*ahem*
