I recently ran across a hubber who made the assertion that he selects his followers carefully. A followup interaction revealed that he believes he gets the option to decide who can follow him and who cannot. Is this true? Do some hubbers have a special feature that allows them to choose who follows them?
I believe you can delete followers, but that's about it.
I see you've gotten answers from other Hubbers. I just wanted to confirm. You can not choose your followers or prevent others from following. Perhaps this Hubber simply meant he decided who he himself should follow carefully?
Hub authors have no special powers or abilities when it comes to followers, and have never had anything resembling what he is describing in the history of the site.
Not as far as I know. I think he is dreaming. He probably means he chooses who he follows carefully.
Even were it true, I doubt it would provide much benefit.
Now don't get me wrong, having an electric set of steady readers is a wonderful thing. Maybe they all share your stuff to Google Plus, Twitter, or Facebook? Such things could be wonderful for your status and for the status of particular pages.
.....but I find that sometimes someone just likes someone else for reasons of their own understanding, or they do not for the same.
What would be most beneficial would be to have followers who are actually interested in your subjects of publication, then they can leave meaningful content comments. Comments are part of the page's content, you know - or you should.
Most people follow just because they are fishing for followers. Many of them have no, or very few hubs. Most never return to look at your hubs. Having a lot of followers may be beneficial if you are actively producing new hubs; otherwise they will make no difference.

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...

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're...

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...

How do some hubbers get so many followers in such a short space of time. Okay - some people write brilliant hubs on interesting topics but it still puzzles me. I expect someone will come back and say that I...

Dear Hubbers. I've recently noticed so many changes on Hubpages. I had no internet for a week and upon my return things look so different. I like the cleaner white pages with the underline beneath the titles. The column...

I don't generally bother with it. Even under the account people know me under, I never bothered joining other peoples' fan clubs or seeking fans for my own. Under a couple of ID's I tend to only sign in to work. Does it...
