Do you follow the followers?
when someone follows you, do you then feel obligated to return the favor and follow them as well?
yes i follow the followers.Yes i feel obligated to return the favor and follow them as well
Not really, I look up,their profile read up stuff they have written if I am interested then I follow.
I believe you should not do it as a nicety, or a polite gesture.

I do not 'follow' someone because they follow me. But usually I end up doing more for them than 'following' them -- I actually read and comment on their work, giving their hubs a boost, so I like to think. In addition to that, as for many of the people who follow me, I have interacted with them in some critical way.
I write a lot of my hubs based on topics I find right here, in the Q & A. I have answered questions, in the form of hubs, multiple times for several hubbers following me, in addition to reading and commenting on their hubs.
I follow just a handful of hubbers right now. I know that when I follow someone, I would hate to think they were following me for the sake of "returning the favor." I want people to follow me because they WANT to. But again, its my view that I end up doing more for my 'followers' than merely "returning the favor." I will read and leave positive comments on their hubs.
Not really, some I do some I don't, the system is flawed in the same way as amassing 'friends' on facebook, et al. I know someone, in reality, who claims to have about 500 friends on fb, she only, in reality, knows about a dozen, the rest are just a pile of faces on her profile. You can't sensibly follow about 500 people, so its a waste of time trying. I prefer to look through their hubs and questions, vote and comment, and sometimes bookmark the hub to read later. The friends thing is only an attept by HPs to keep people moving around the site.
I'm relatively new here and I think there is a desire of most newbies to acquire as much of a following in as short a time possible. On hindsight you would be doing yourself as well as those who YOU follow a disservice. How is it possible to read and appreciate the writings of say 50 to 100 person especially if their writings are on subjects you do not share a common interest o n

I presently follow 1,975 hub members. My followers are 1,436. I remember hearing something about it being best to unfollow those that are not active on your hubs or that hold no further interest for you.So, I've been doing this. My question is: Have I been mislead or am I...

I am fairly new here, but what I've learned is that most people follow to get followers. (I was that person). What I discovered was that, if I follow you I am required to read your hubs when published.My suggestion; don't follow to be followed. Follow because you genuinely are interested in the...

Just a quick question, as above, does having followers help your hubs/hubscore?
by Andrew Smith 4 years ago
I've just reached a landmark of 100 followers (yay, me!), which might not seem like much, but it's built up pretty slowly over time, and I've made sure to interact with everyone I'm following regularly (106 now), checking out new hubs, etc. It made me consider an interesting question:How do...

Is there such a thing as following to many hubbers.Do you read all Hubbers you follow?
by Shawn May Scott 7 years ago
I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and maybe it is the way it goes but I think it is disrespectful. I have commented on a...
