Followers Disappearing!

    Is hubpages in the process of deleting a number of accounts? Or perhaps people are moving to other writing platforms? Either way I am losing some followers (about 4 in the last few days). I can't be sure, but I don't think it's people that have just decided to stop following me, because the number that I am following has decreased too.

      My numbers are fluctuating too. Both the numbers of followers and the number of following have gone down by a couple. I think your speculation of it being accounts not being active sounds reasonable to me. I just checked and one hubber following me was banned. Pavlo's reason sounds plausible, too.

      Tell me about it! I was looking forward to reach 200 followers for weeks, and it kept creeping up to 199, then lose a few, then up again. I eventually got there last week. : )
      I thought the same thing about some people getting banned and disappearing from the site, even if I did not look into it too much.

    Very often people follow you just hoping that you follow them too. May be that is the reason... I also have number of followers moving here and there and do not regret too much if someone desides to unfollow me.

    Wow, this is very strange you mention this because it has been happening to me too. I thought it was just a coincidence, but perhaps it is not because I seen a few accounts banned or gone or something.

    I have been noticing this for awhile now. In two days I had about 20 follow me. I thought that was strange and I checked on some of them most had not started a hub. Each day I would have 2, 3 or 4 followers stop following me. I can’t figure it out. I understand that some stop following if I don’t follow back but this is just different.The fluctuation is just more than it should be.

    I wonder about those visitors from another writing site who came here to get folks to go to that site. They had no hubs.
