A false or true following on Hubpages
It's almost becoming like chess
Followers on Hubpages
When it seems as if your being followed aimlessly on hubpages or it feels as if your being stalked it can make for a no good feeling. So if you notice such a thing going on behind these scenes here and on your hub account, take notice for starters. make sure to annotate all occurrences somewhere, and to keep track of how many times such a thing occurs if you are to detect any malicious communications from such parties in the near future.
This article is one that is an answer to a Q&A about a hubber who's not sure if some people are following her with good intent or not. Let's hope that this very hub can help her out in some way or another, and to get to the bottom of the issue at hand.

Do you think its important to establish a true following?
Whats to make of the occurrence
For now there's truly nothing to make of it all when a single person chooses to follow another hubber, and has never made any other efforts of making communications, or contact digitally. To me a true following anywhere online let alone on hubpages, should derive from the true interactions between online users, but it isn't the only method people are deciding to utilize on such networks.
Many individuals may choose to go the false following route, which on hubpages gets them no where pretty much, because the system detects of such irregular activity immediately, and definitely that of suspicious statistical data being compiled over time, besides it knowing the communications being established between all users here.
There will always be those who have their very own hidden agendas in trying to out smart a computing system or network, and to not truly have sincerity in how they choose to communicate effectively (Article to insightful commenting on hubpages).
The funny thing is, there is a large number of people who actually have no idea that online communications, isn't just about clicking the follow button and posting up stuff randomly all the time, and the not so well known fact that to succeed today online, its much more about being human towards one another, establishing yourself in a network, the art of being real, and by providing true communications amongst one another.

Aimless following & reporting a users suspicious activities
So when a hubber gets followed by numerous no name followers, well it does indeed make that person curious to find out what is truly going on. Other then the fact that someone with no other activities besides following has occurred, its pretty simple to see what they have in mind over time. This also means that with no hubs written, and only following going on, who knows what such a person has joined hubpages for, and the possibilities are endless.
I don't suggest to jump the gun on anything here or elsewhere online, make sure you know for sure of such activity others partake in that has indeed worried you, but take note of anything suspicious for sure and take action appropriately, which there are many ways to do so on hubpages. (Those who follow aimlessly be advised that lowering of your hubber score is imminent).
