Does it hurt your feelings if someone unfollows you?


Mary615 recently wrote a hub asking the question "What Makes You Decide To Unfollow A Fellow Hubber?" It sparked a lot of comments, but it got me thinking. Why do I want followers? Presumably it's because they will be interested in reading my hubs and/or Q&A or whatever. I've also noticed lately that my follow number is stuck at 229. It's hit 230 a couple of times, but keeps going back down. So should I be upset that some people have stopped following me? I don't think so, if they are not interested, or worse yet are bugged by my posts, why would I want them to follow me?

    Sure, you wonder, but those same hubbers you unfollowed may have won followers with the same views that drove you away. I guess I'd worry if lots of followers started dropping me, the I'd try to figure out why.

    People with strong opinions are bound to offend someone.I wouldn't worry about it Angela, just keep on being yourself, I'm sure plenty of people will keep following you. Wouldn't it be boring here if everyone tippy toed around trying not to offend an

    I think a lot of people followed me because of my craft hubs, they were popular. But most of my hubs are not about crafts, so maybe some people aren't interested in my hubs about California. And actually my feelings are not hurt at all.

    The only way I know is to look at your list of followers and see who's missing. As the list grows, I'm afraid I don't remember some who don't post regularly. You have to click through all the pages, it's kind of a pain. Usually I don't try.

    OK, that was a good honest answer. Even though logically we know you can't please everyone, rejection hurts a little.

    I think I unfollowed you by accident, I do disagree with you sometimes, but I like your hubs, well some of them. I follow lots of people I don't always agree with. If someone's always pushing an agenda I don't like I probably would unfollow.

    No it doesn't hurt my feelings, if they want to follow me they will. Sometimes people follow because they think they want to, but realise later that your hubs is not really what they are interested in.
