When you follow a person or topic, ask question, post a hub, etc. It posts in the activity feed. Is there a way to stop the notifications so it is not spamming your followers when you follow or post several things in a row?
The only things that will slow or stop the notifications are either going to be self-control/restraint on your part, or the followers choosing to restrict what they see on their end by editing their filters.
