Mega1 asked while trying to answer my previous comment on following people and she asked: when is the right time to unfollow someone? This am not sure I have the answer for and hence I table it before the well deserving and knowledgable people here.
Please permit me to ask again: when is the right time to unfollow someone?
oh haha! and also if you don't like their opinions or the way they write. I was wondering if I should unfollow people who write so darn much there's no way I can read it! But I am still interested in what they write anyway, even if I don't read it. Honestly, I don't know how some people can write 20 hubs a day - and day after day! True, I haven't read the hubs so they may just not be very good - I kinda doubt if the quality is that great. It takes me at least 1/2 a day to write just one hub. And I am very picky about the subject matter. I won't treat HP like a blog - I don't think the very personal journal type things belong here. I probably should unfollow a couple people who are doing that. (also, scores do mean something! I don't follow people in the first place whose scores are under 70) what a place!
In addition to all the answers above (which are all good)... Whenever you no longer have an interest in what they are writing.
I stop following when my initial reason for following seems questionable. Since I read those I follow, they'd better be people I emulate in some sense. Yesterday I added 8-9 to the mere 3-4 I'd been following. I intend to unfollow one now who is prolific and not writing what I know she could. Glenn Stok, OTOH is prolific and worth it.

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?

When I first started out with hubpages I followed hundreds of people, because I wanted them to follow me back, because I though that's how you get readers to come to your hub. I recently found out that following a lot...

OK, I may be on a RANT, but, you people who want to use HP as some kind of social game playing site, please grow up and go over to your Facebook account. Those people are used to game players. Me? You're wasting space...

I noticed recently after I followed someone in error, that I couldn't stop following them. Is this a new feature that when we follow another hubber, it's for ever now? Because this function is not working!
