How quickly do you "unfollow" a hub after reading it?


I always leave a comment and feedback after reading hubs. I find that I like to follow a hub until the hub author comments on my comment. Some authors don't leave comments, but that's alright. I read hubs for enjoyment, so the comments are a plus. When I read a hub of someone I know doesn't engage, I unfollow that hub immediately so that I don't keep getting updates about the hub. I was wondering what other hubbers do about unfollowing hubs. How soon after reading a hub do you unfollow that hub?

    Hi Becky, I know what you mean about email clutter. I read a lot of hubs, so that becomes a real issue with me, which is why at some point I have to get busy unfollowing hubs.

    What a great tip, RTalloni. I never even thought to do the unfollow task through the "my activity" list. I like that idea a lot.

    When I first started with HubPages I use to not unfollow. But like you, my email box was overflowing. Now, that I do the task of unfollowing, my email box is back to normal.

    Unfollowing has now become a task and part of what I do almost every day now.

    Hi sheilamyers. It sounds like you have a good strategy. A week sounds like a good amount of time to keep a hub active before unfollowing.

    Your feedback is very appreciated. I was wondering what other hubbers do. It helps to see how other people handle things. Thank you for answering this question.
