    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.
