following hubbers

    What's your criteria of following a hubber?

      sheilamyersposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      My main criteria is they have to write about topics that interest me. I can't see following someone if I'm never going to read any of their hubs.

    I try to follow hubbers which have better stats than mine. They have more hubs for one. This way, I can learn from their example. Also, I've also followed new hubbers in an attempt to encourage and motivate them. But as this negatively impacts your hub score, I don't follow new hubbers that often. That's terrible and I wish the system were set up to encourage instead of discourage helping newer hubbers.

      The negative impact this has on your hubber score is to discourage mass following sprees and the 'follow back' mentality.

      I mostly follow hubbers whose work I'm likely to read.

    I have to actually want to read their stuff.

        Thanks for the response. I think the in depth knowledge and ideological approach of the hubbers need to be understand through the following. And as an encouragement we need to follow a new hubber as well. What I feel is there is insufficient comments and there follow ups. We hardly find one or two comments and that's over.

    If they write about a topic that interests me, or a hub catches my attention when browsing, I'll read them.   If I enjoy the writing, I'll follow them.

    I mostly follow my old Squidmates, haven't had time yet to fully explore other hubbers with all the squb updating going on.

    I follow anyone, especially members that don't have many followers and are still new, learning to write, after all we all started like that and those new members need encouragement, i'm not worried about earning, only helping others.

    On Squidoo I was a RocketSquid Greeter for many months, right from the beginning when that club was started.
