This post highlights 10 members that you should follow on FriendFeed. For those of you that are new to my blog, this will be the third post of this type. The previous ones are located here and here. There are several more hundred people that belong on this list. I will publish a new list with more frequency, preferably monthly. I will also be exploring some themed type recommendation lists. I hope you get the same value from these members as I do. If you do subscribe to any of these members, please give them some time to subscribe back, if they choose to do so. They have no idea that their inbox is about to be flooded with notifications. It could be a little overwhelming
