Twitter Rolls Out 'Suggestion For You' Feature

Author:

For those who love the Facebook’s “Friends You Might Know” feature and/or are sick of the #FF stream, this weekend’s Twitter announcement is perfect for you! In a new blog post, they reveal their latest feature for users: Suggestion For You.

The algorithms in this feature, built by our user relevance team, suggest people you don’t currently follow that you may find interesting. The suggestions are based on several factors, including people you follow and the people they follow. You’ll see these suggestions on Twitter.com and the Find People section. If you like a suggestion, click “follow”; if you don’t, click “hide,” and we’ll try not to suggest that user again.

The new features are also going to be available to developers via an API, allowing them to incorporate the new friend suggestions into Twitter clients.

I don’t currently have it available on my account, but look forward to checking out the feature. I find myself browsing through my friends’ follow list periodically, looking for applicable and interesting new people to follow. This makes it that much easier!
