When I am hub hopping, I have noticed that there are many people with little or no hubs and they have hundreds of followers. I see that some of them are following many people and I understand the reciprocity factor but I don't still don't understand the why and how of their fanbase.

Thank you, Sherry! I love the way you put it, kind of stockpiling for the future!
Thank you, it does give food for thought.
I'd also like to point out that some Hubbers don't write a lot of Hubs but may be very active with the forums and Q&A sections, thus getting followers. Just something I noticed...JS~
Yes, I have noticed a few people who are on here just to discus things in the forums and they sometimes develop a fallowing too. Good point.
I have seen that on Twitter also. In an attempt to build a business, I am on most of the media channels but....I do not advertise or follow just to follow. I also don't "collect" followers. That is why this baffles me!
You are right. We should follow hubs that are of interest to us (whether they follow us or not) I feel the same way about comments. They should be left when they are sincere.
Yes, I have encountered them!
Thank you for answering. Sometimes I tend to be impulsive. Someone follows me, I follow right back. Now, like you, I stop and read their profiles, check out their hubs!
I know, right?!?! I have been here 4 months, writing diligently, forming a small but worthy following and then I see someone with 500 followers and no hubs or another who asks several questions a day and no hubs. I don't get it! thanks for answering,
