Someone has just followed me that I do not want to follow me. I reported them for overly promotional.
He signed up for Hubpages 2 weeks ago, has published no hubs, and his profile is advertising for his business in another country. In the mean time he has "followed" over 187 hubbers. I do not wish to have him as a follower. Is there a way to get unfollowed?
This is his profile page:
I don't know but I would like to know the same thing! I searched the forums for an answer but hadn't thought about asking. Thanks for posting.
Nope. You don't have any say over who chooses to be your fan. Sort of like the rest of reality.
There is no way to control who follows you. It's not really an issue as it wont effect you in any way. I wouldn't be concerned with this.
Go to profile and in the right upper hand corner is Report. Click on report and report him for spam.
HI Lambservant, Lori right
Anyway yes just block him or report him, if it continues he obviously needs to be reported.
However there are many people now that actually care about stuff like this, you can find them all over the net if you do research extensively. You can find the genuine ones as opposed to the fake ones.
There is so much fraud on the net you have to be careful.
I would say call the cops but they do nothing, from what is going on with corrupt cops (hence the robert leona case) they are the ones that we need protection from it seems.
nevertheless if you need help I will help.
Sometimes just blocking this person helps and its a start
Is there a way to block a follower? I didn't think there was.
I just checked my follower list and underneath each follower profile is an "unfollow" link. Perhaps you could try that and unfollow the fellow. Best regards--Deb
You don't generally get to control who other people follow. That is kind of their business and no reflection on you.
I think I have the same follower. It doesn't bother me, though. All types of people in this world and life would be boring if everyone was the same...
True. Besides, having a follower that is involved in possibly dubious things doesn't affect your reputation at all. I have one follower that is following over 10,000 people and has a hubscore of 1. It doesn't bother me at all as that is one more potential viewer.

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push my numbers over 200. That is great. However, most of these people have not only...

What has your experience been. Did you notice that the more people you followed, the more people followed you? Did you ever start following people just because you wanted more followers? I have been pretty selective in the people that I follow and I am totally happy with all of the awesome Hubbers...

Wouldn't a hubber who seems to write exclusively on product reviews, which they openly state they got for free or at a reduced price simply for the purpose of writing review, be considered as "overly promotional," as that is all the hub seems to be doing, is promoting a product under the...

I am being followed by someone with no hubs, who claims to have over 100 followers. As I always do with a new follower, I went to this persons profile and all their hubtivity is following other hubbers. Their off hub url is a spam ad. How do I remove them from my followers list and block them?

When you are notified of a new follower, how do you respond?Do you go to their page and check them out? Do you read any of their hubs? Do you mke sure that they are legitimate? I have a lot of followers who seem to be advertisers. Hubpages are really good about weeding them out but I do see many...
