My followers have all apparently been offended as well. (Whatever it is you did, I must have done the same thing. ). (This is, of course, fuel for the glitch theory, or at least the tweaking theory, to the "weird traffic thing" that's been going on.)
it looks like they moved teh follow button, found it as a green box with a number on it beside your avatar. I thought mine were lost as well. But no found it on teh left side of your avatar ( and mine as well.)
I would think we'll get a formal statement on this soon
Maybe it's because an outside viewer from google etc doesn't necessarily need to know how many followers and author has. Or so people don't simple add and try to copy the more successful authors within the site?
Hello, All! Here's the news: The follow button in your profile box on your Hubs was mistakenly taken down with the last build and will be restored in the next few days. The follow button on your profile page will continue to be in the green follow button; that should be an accurate account of your followers, mine is. The great news is that we will be launching a new profile page in the future, here's the blog post (http://blog.hubpages.com/2011/08/site-design-feedback/), so it will look a lot more organic on your profile page in the future.
I personally don't like the new location of the follow button.
For one thing, it's too close to the "flag this profile" button and someone might miss.
In addition, it was useful having the number of followers clearly displayed along with the number of hubs. That was a logical position. Now it's not. I hope the new profile page Robin mentioned will have a logical display of followers again.
lost all of my followers too! But doing so seemed to have pushed up my Hubauthor score a few notches from what it was y'day! Who knows....other people are getting big jumps in views and double red triangles - mine have't moved in two days.
This is not so much for discussion, rather, I need an immediate help from any experienced Hubbers. I am a new member and have just posted my first Hub. I am ready to share with friends, but there is no Follow button on...
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...
I noticed today that the "follow this hubber" option has been removed from the site. How am I supposed to follow anyone now? More importantly, how am I to get new followers?I have not noticed any announcement...
