I have noticed over the past few weeks that I have been gaining new fans at a steady rate,I thank you all, but I have also noticed that sometimes I get a new fan,just for them to dissapear within 24hours, I wonder if it is because I do not reciprocate straight away, because I like an author to become a little established first, or if it is because hubpages are removing spammers from the site,just out of interest even though it is probably a bit of both lol.....jimmy
Do you reciprocate automatically? Is that how it's supposed to work?
I'm pretty selective about becoming a fan. I get enough emails about new Hubs as it is, without becoming a fan of people who write on topics I'm not interested in. Is that the wrong etiquette?
not at all, I too am picky about who I call a fan. When you become their fan you have to see all the links of their hubs and such if you just added fans as they added you you'd have a soup of things to got hrough everyday to see what you like (if they dont write what you like).. its not like buyig a christmas gift (a whole other subject I want to write on lol) you dont need to feel obligated to add them as a fan, some people just add you because they want to be able to find a particular article you wrote.. it would be liying befan them for no real reason, it breaches the reason they are called "fans"
I seem to get some fans who have not published any hubs - so no Idon't reciprocate until they at least write something - I dont mind new people doing it though Im a little bermused why !
See if this helps, Lissie:
In places like Digg, When I become your fan, I'm your fan. When you reciprocate and become mine as well, we are called friends. We don't have a friends list here, so to kind of welcome them, I become their fan, so they feel they have friends.
I am a fan of all my fans, to show that I'm a friend, and have not ignored them!
Originally, I used to be a fan of only those whose hubs I was interested in, like yours, but now, since it's only a little effort, I do this!
Yes, if we had friends and fans as separate lists, I would put the nonwriters into the friends, but I guess that's not very practical.

I invited a friend here a while ago and it seems that there are only two frinds that have join his fan club. Now I do notice that top hubbers join new hubbers fan clubs all at once--only my friend seems to have...

In my relatively short time on HubPages, I have come across Hubbers who seem to do nothing but become fans. Are these spammers, or am I way off base?

How does someone get 100 plus fans in a short period of time? I like having fans but I wonder what it means when a hubber adds hundreds of fans in only one day or less? You know what I mean you see you have a new...

I would like to be able to see or know why another hubber has become a fan. I know, I know...Just ask, but that hasn't worked as of yet. Anyone else feel the same way or am I just a loose screw? ...
