Are you being followed on hubpages
First joining hubpages
If you have arrived at this very hub article, you may be thinking to yourself, "Is this just another one of those dry, somewhat long winded hubpage tutorials". Well if you thought such a thing, I regret to inform you, but this isn't that kind of gig.
Nope, this is something entirely different, and will be a sort of grand tour for those looking to see what it's like, for a person to generate what is known as a true following, by seeing all the wrong ways to go, and what happens in the end.
They are watching too - Beware!
Aimless Stalking Socially
I personally didn't do it right on Facebook, on Google+, or on Twitter. Now for those networks mentioned in order to generate a following or collection of friends digitally things are very simple on them, because those social networks allow you to locate either those users you already know, or to simply go crazy if you wish, and begin to follow as many strangers as you can, until that all time limit is reached on each.
Google plus has a 5,000 circle limit for its users to add others onto, and that its members see fit. (Not sure about Facebook, then you gotta research that one, maybe it has a 1 Billion friends limit to be added or followed there, or whatever they call it there.)
Twitter has its own limits as well, I forget what it is (Go figure!), but its along the lines of a 2,000 max or so if those whom are actually following you aren't as equally high in numbers there.
So the all time question of the day is: Does hubpages have such a limitation for fan followings? and do they have any means for us all to detect other users automatically such as it is on Facebook, or Google+, & Twitter? (Yes, indeed look at your profile page, hubpages feed, and hubs link. Well, I guess they have ways here, but its nothing like the others)
This is the game on Google Plus
Cool explanation of an Algorithm in a hub format
- The Algorithm of Chaos, order, disorder, and fractal...
This hub dives deep into chaos theory, but makes things look much more realistic as ever, without to much scientific terminology. All this in an all out attempt to make an algorithm sound fun, and to make much more sense of our modern day technologie
These were all valid questions, but the other tough nut to crack here is, is there any penalties involved with all of this aimless following going on online today.
Well, actually on hubpages there is a such a thing as a algorithm, and many new hubbers have no clue that such a thing actually does exist. So what is an algorithm?
Well, if I were to provide the info for such a thing this article would actually breach the initial contract that it began with and so I will just say! think of it as a way for the network God's and on any given network online, to detect the presence of any anomalies, meaning anything odd going on. (Like excessive aimless following, Hint! Hint!)
Epiphany of the day!
- This means that by developing a pattern similar to how people get with fan following on the other networks explained earlier, these folks are actually damaging their hubpages account, web reputation as a whole and loads more things.
This dude looks like he knows what he's talking about (No way!)
Hub scoring resource
- Understanding Hubscore, Hubber score and what makes ...
Attaining the ever so elusive hubber score of 100 is truly a tough thing to achieve here on hubpages, and this article takes folks for a ride into the world of reaching for higher and higher stats on hubpages, and in every way imaginable.
What's up with being scored on hubpages
Your hubber score, which is a number also factored out by that very same algorithm is responsible for positioning your content onto this network as well. It's all figured out mathematically as well as done theoretically, which is something of another hubs discussion altogether.
Just try to take a breather for a moment, have a dozen donuts if you're indeed at a cafe or Dunkin Donuts, with cell phone in hand. Maybe let your hair loose, stand up away from the computer screen before your eyes pop out, and realize this very truth. This isn't Kansas anymore, and you are not Alice from Wonderland neither. This is in fact the cyberspace real deal, also known as the digital raw deal!
Silly fact of December:
- Hubpages has been holding many aimless following types, in their digital prison of sorts using these numerically correct techniques of archiving their account and content at the bottomless pit of the network here, never to escape its vice gripping hold. (Signified by that infamous hubber score number, right beside your awesome looking HP profile image.)
Living on the top feels good!
How do you think that they are actually considered the top article writers network worldwide? The focus here has always been, to aim at creating a heavily guarded writer network, spam free, and its also on the pure and uncut filtration process as well. Keep in mind this premise also, which is; all of your activities are being continuously, and heavily monitored day and night for them to police this bad boy.
Google is the other police aka web guardians or God's of the online digital clouds (Cloud Computing has completely taken over the Internet, try to catch up folks!), they have these huge jurassic like creatures known as panda bears, and they are holding all the keys today. Every now and then a penguin or two comes out to due their policing as well, but for the most part we are scrutinized to the nth degree by them darn panda's.
Either way, you're dead wrong again for thinking you would get away, because online people are getting banned, prosecuted and much worse, even facing jail time and prosecution for online scams they have committed, and whether they had known what they were doing or not.
So just don't do it! and try to do your very best to establish what is known as a true following. A communications based way of helping out a fellow writer once in a while by reading their hubs, commenting, and sharing in any way shape or form on hubpages.
Why false following isn't good
If you think that creating a following is just clicking the follow button, so that others can jump onto your ban wagon and do the same here on hubpages, well you are dead wrong.
The fact of the matter is, once you choose to follow someone, its getting tabulated and all your communications to and from such individuals are also getting tracked and all of this is being watched by Nasa's satellites as well, and the United States federal government. (Think wisely and do right towards your fellow writers, if you so choose to follow them)
Negative results from those false followers (Malicious users)
Let's say you decided to take on the spammer approach here from the jump start, and send duplicate emails to each follower you have here, actually the first thing that shall happen to you is; your IP address shall be tagged for investigations, and on federal levels at that.
Now, why is this such a bad thing one might think to themselves, while probably home in a warm cozy bed chipping away at their spammer keyboard of great hopeful automated success. This can and will land you into a great deal of legal troubles, so be mindful of your digital actions behind these computer screens, and electronic gadgets.
