    Has anyone experienced this phenomenon?

    You read a post or hub by someone you have not encountered before.

    You become their fan.

    And after you do, you see a list of hubbers who other fans of that person are a fan of.

    And YOU are near the top of that list!

    Kind of freaked me out the first few times it happened.

    But then, I thought that it was because you tend to become fans of a certain type of person, so it's logical that people who are fans of yours, would also be attracted to become a fan of  that person.

    Any comments on this?
    Or it is just a commonplace event.
    Or am I just an idiot for even noticing this stuff?

    (OK, here's a chance for everyone to have a free shot at me lol )

      Yer, we're pretty dumb down here in the land down under the land down under.
      They put stuff in our water.

      So Gamer Girl is getting righter with every passing second.

      Duuuuurrrr.

        I didn't even know the land down under had a land down under.

        Is that where Australia used to send all their dangerous criminals? big_smile

          Well, consider this as your nugget of information for the day. Hope you don't choke on it!

          And I'm descended from the worst of the baddest of the criminals.

          I crossed the street today against the red light. That's the kind of rough and tough people we are down here.
          So watch out!
          You legless frogblogger.

                  Would you care to test that statement with a poll of Hub Pages spammers and religious afficionados?
                  And now I'm going to bed to cry myself to sleep after Gamer girl's viscious comments.

    Methinks you two are snobbier than the French tongue

    It's impossible to be snobbier than the French !
    We've tried, and failed miserably. lol

  13. Squimpleton profile image60
    Squimpletonposted 8 years ago

    Perhaps you should have tried a different area of France - I'm sure you could manage to be snottier than Southern Frenchmen?

      You must be kidding. I live in the south of France, and if you want snotty, this is the place big_smile

    I think I could get a ton more fans if I just went with an avatar of a hot chick.

      I think you're right Shadecloth. Your fan numbers are pathetic.

      Here's a new avatar for you that might help lol lol

      Just check with Maddie before you start using it just to make sure it doesn't breach Hub Pages adult guidelines.
