I have so many people I follow and the problem is, I never read anyone's hubs, hardly ever, becasue it's so overwhelming.
Would they notice
would it be ok to stop following people?
I'm really bad at reading stuff and I want to highlight the ones I esp want to read
No, Hubpages has a goon squad that enforces social activity and they will delete all your hubs if you unfollow people. Reverse-Adsense will go into effect and you will have to pay Google every month. You will receive the latest poetry hubs as voicemail spam on your home phone and you will be forced to listen to every last metric foot of sappy poetry before you can hang up the phone. As a last resort, Jason Menayan will come to your house and cook meals based on the very worst of Hubpages recipes. Beware!
no, lol, i just don't want to lose followers.
well, there's nothing you can do about that. but losing a few followers or even a lot of followers won't impact your earnings. the vast majority of your Hubpages followers are not reading everything you write anyway.
Great point! There are so many people being followed it's not likely the majority are reading your work anyway. So just do what you need to do and don't over think it.
If you liked someones stuff enough to follow them, then why delete? You never know when you might get around to them again. If you still have a desire to read more, keep them around.
Okay...my thing is I'm following people I don't want to follow...some..
I've stopped following plenty of people and it's never had any negative effect on my own followers.
I follow maybe a dozen or so people. Over 3700 people are listed as following me. There's no connection between the two situations.
If you don't want to follow someone, just stop following them.
They might. Fair's fair.
I had to unfollow one enthusiastic hubber who was swamping my feed so much it was burying everything else.
Hubpages has enough quality content to fill every minute of free time you have and then some. You likely have other things that round out your free time like reading, monster truck rallys, numismatics, etc. if someone doesn't agree with how you want invest your limited time, then they are quite arrogant.
Interests change. Better Hubbers come along and bump inferior writers; this has happened to me. If I want to keep my followers, I need to step up my game.
Unfollowing can be cathartic; it's like letting the phone ring not because you are too busy to answer, but because you can.

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you...

Has anyone noticed this problem? I was looking at people that follow me and noticed that many of them are showing that I don't follow them when I know that I always have. Has anyone noticed this problem too?

I am new to HubPages and still learning my way around - but really enjoying it so far! But I had someone start to 'follow' me and I presume because I didn't follow her back, she 'unfollowed' me. I'm not following anyone...

Not complaining but I don't understand hub. In an attempt to get involved, I started following a lot of Hubbers. Many of them followed me back and I am seeing a dramatic increase in viewing traffic for my hubs. I guess...

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push...
