How to jump-start a social network is always a difficult question. In most cases we import a few contacts from another social network. We look for the same people in the new network and if it does not work, we start inviting them.
Over the last months many Buzzers have spent significant time establishing good ways to share their core network with new people. Google Buzz has a recommendation system built-in, but nobody so far was able to understand how it works.
Inspired by Twitter, we established Follow-Friday posts in which we share with our followers interesting lists of contacts. Over time some of those lists became more sophisticated and a Recommended Buzzers method was suggested.
Here are several interesting posts with the purpose to share and expand the Buzz social network.
