We need a button/favicon for our official “Follow” button.
Fliptop’s follow button can be embedded on your website to let visitors subscribe to specific content (will typically be placed next to Email, Print and Share buttons)
Visitors can choose to receive updates via email, text message or Twitter when content comes out about a specific news topic, matching a particular job opportunity, or any other filter they specify.
We need a simple image that 1) is clean, 2) distinctive (e.g. no RSS icons, “+” symbols or anything that can be confused with another action), and 3) easily understandable.
Can explore symbols that represent subscribing, following, tracking, alerting, monitoring, receiving at match, getting notified of a match
To give a related, but not competitive example, see the ShareThis button/favicon, where they took a simple point expanding/connecting to two points to represent sharing - http://sharethis.com. We’re looking for this level of simplicity, but obviously not representing sharing, but following.
