What is an appropriate amount of time to give before following up with the recruiter after an interview? They said they will be in contact soon - its been about a week so just wondering when to contact.

Generally, I think the best practice is to send an email immediately after the interview, thanking the person from HR and the interviewers.
Having said that, I wouldn't send another follow-up before at least 10 days have passed, and when you do send one, you need to be super polite. When they make their decision, you will be the first to know:)

I think this is an interesting question that may be relevant for many people. I would be happy to share my thoughts on it:
It's generally a good idea to wait at least 2 weeks before following up with the recruiter after an interview. This allows them enough time to properly review your interview and make a decision.
However, if the interviewer specifically mentioned that they would be in contact soon, it's reasonable to reach out after a week of the interview to inquire about the status of your application.
Keep in mind that it's important to be respectful and patient when following up, and avoid being too persistent. If the recruiter is interested in moving forward with your application, they will reach out to you.
If you would like a more detailed discussion on how to address your specific situation, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.

Give it 1-2 weeks before you follow up. Unless you have a competing offer that is forcing you to make a decision - then you should act sooner. Otherwise, give it some time and don't be on their heels right away.
Wishing you the best of luck that the feedback is positive

I would not followup until 2 weeks have passed. Remember, following up doesn't change their decision…it's just about you and wanting to have control. So, if you can wait 2 weeks and not appear needy, that's best!
