Friday FUEL Fix (10/09/09)

Well Friday has come again, and once more on FYC we wanted to do another check in with this great Network that we are a part of to and send our readers into the weekend with an extra little something something. That’s right, folks, we are talking about the Friday FUEL Fix. With so many great followers on Twitter, so many Flickr members contributing to the FYC Flickr group, and some awesome additions to the FUEL Brand Network we decided we would feature a little bit from all three areas in one post to show our appreciation for and of the people, designs, and posts we have chosen to feature.

FYC Twitter Follow Friday

We have thousands of great followers on Twitter and we really wish we could feature them all, because they really do so much for improving our online experience. But we will take some time when doing these posts to pass on a few recommended Tweeps that you should also be checking out. Thanks to all of you who take the time to help share our works and interact with us on Twitter, and here is the first of our Follow Friday post inclusions.
