Is it really worth it to follow every single person you encounter in HubPages? I think not. I mean, I see some people on here with thousands of followers and dozens of hubs (with poor grammar and spelling), and their profile HubScores are only in the low 60's. In contrast, I'm a very conservative follower as I focus mostly on my writing skills here in HP, I only follow those people that I truly have an interest in, and my average HubScore is in the 90's. So what's your opinion on following as many people as possible just to try and get more followers?
Twitter has taught me to only follow those that truly interest me. Otherwise things can get unmanageable. I went off the radar here on Hubpages for a year or so and my hubscore is down in the 50's. The plan is to get back into it slowly and comment here or there where it interests me to do so, follow a few hubbers that I can relate to and post a hub or two a month. I should be up in the 80's again in no time.

Hello,I have read some fastinating hubs and when I follow them I hope they will return the favor. How many of you agree? It will definitely place our hubs in a much higher paying bracket.

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

I have been working on unfollowing people.I hate doing that, because I know sometimes people get insulted. I mean no insult.I like to give people a fair chance to engross me, but if they haven't been able to do that, I just don't want to see their links popping up. It doesn't mean they...
