I have noticed over the past few weeks that I have been gaining new fans at a steady rate,I thank you all, but I have also noticed that sometimes I get a new fan,just for them to dissapear within 24hours, I wonder if it is because I do not reciprocate straight away, because I like an author to become a little established first, or if it is because hubpages are removing spammers from the site,just out of interest even though it is probably a bit of both lol.....jimmy
Do you reciprocate automatically? Is that how it's supposed to work?
I'm pretty selective about becoming a fan. I get enough emails about new Hubs as it is, without becoming a fan of people who write on topics I'm not interested in. Is that the wrong etiquette?
not at all, I too am picky about who I call a fan. When you become their fan you have to see all the links of their hubs and such if you just added fans as they added you you'd have a soup of things to got hrough everyday to see what you like (if they dont write what you like).. its not like buyig a christmas gift (a whole other subject I want to write on lol) you dont need to feel obligated to add them as a fan, some people just add you because they want to be able to find a particular article you wrote.. it would be liying befan them for no real reason, it breaches the reason they are called "fans"
I seem to get some fans who have not published any hubs - so no Idon't reciprocate until they at least write something - I dont mind new people doing it though Im a little bermused why !
See if this helps, Lissie:
In places like Digg, When I become your fan, I'm your fan. When you reciprocate and become mine as well, we are called friends. We don't have a friends list here, so to kind of welcome them, I become their fan, so they feel they have friends.
I am a fan of all my fans, to show that I'm a friend, and have not ignored them!
Originally, I used to be a fan of only those whose hubs I was interested in, like yours, but now, since it's only a little effort, I do this!
Yes, if we had friends and fans as separate lists, I would put the nonwriters into the friends, but I guess that's not very practical.

First, why does anyone go proactively looking for fans?Do they? There are people who joined after me and have, at best, questionable quality hubs, yet seem to have fans in the double digits. To me, that can only be the result of them proactively working on getting fans. Why?There are hubs here,...

I invited a friend here a while ago and it seems that there are only two frinds that have join his fan club. Now I do notice that top hubbers join new hubbers fan clubs all at once--only my friend seems to have been missed. He needs to become known. He has writers block about who...

Should we call our "HP friends" on not being actual friends?I have more respect for those who read some of their "friends" articles, on occasion, than those who never do. Is it best to un-follow and ignore those who are friends in name only? I tend to think so. How about you?

How can I get more fans?How many times do people see my hubs?

In my relatively short time on HubPages, I have come across Hubbers who seem to do nothing but become fans. Are these spammers, or am I way off base?

How does someone get 100 plus fans in a short period of time? I like having fans but I wonder what it means when a hubber adds hundreds of fans in only one day or less? You know what I mean you see you have a new fan but check out their fans you see hundreds of fans in a short period of time...
