This jus doesnt make sense to me....I spent countless hours faning people and writing sincere comments about their hubs, but I just dont seem to get the love back..am I the only one that notices this? And if im not can someone please give me an explanation as to why people do this.......God, you hubber are driving me crazy lol
If you want fans, write something in your profile so people know about you. And don't fan too much! .Nobody likes that in here Welcome and good luck
Outside traffic pays you, fans dont ! Look at mine I have 350, now go look at my comments on my last hub, do you see 350, noo ya dont. You dont need fakes, sorry I meant fans, go for the outside traffic !
Did it cross your mind that...
1) While you've been on your mass famming spree people have been doing other things in life that hasn't involved checking in on hubpages?
2) That people become fans of other people who actually enjoy their work?
I don't automatically fan people as a knee-jerk reaction. You need to have a history of impressing me. 2 months probably won't cut it, how can 2 days?
Don't worry, just wait, fans will come naturally!
I guess I will fan you since you had enough guts to get in the forums and say this. I am now a fan. lol.
dont you just adore this guy. C'mon people just fan him. Put a smile on his face. But after you hubbers
Because they're not cool (the people who don't fan other people). Just my opinion.
Well ya missed my brilliant hubs
I spent the day with my therapist , he recommended a stiff drink and wing dings
Welcome to hubpages justone331 ,your journey has just begun enjoy the ride.
You're confusing fans with friends. If you're a fan of Beyonce, do you expect her to give you the love back? No. You're her fan because you like her work (or maybe her butt, but you get the picture).
If I join someone's fan club, it's because I genuinely like their work. If you join my fan club, I'll look at your profile and your Hubs and I'll join if I want to see more. Or not. Nothing to do with love!
Whats love got to do, got to do with it? What's love, if not a second hand emotion? What's love got to do, got to do with it? If you fan a hubber, and you dont get fanned back. (whistles tune)
hey cj, don't sing songs with hands and love in the same sentence...
Dude, women eat that stuff up. Maybe not that Tina Turner song, its more a guy's song just trying to tell a girl, c'mon lets get it on, dont be all emotional about it.
dude: you got it wrong....I was making fun of you because you were talkin about love and your hands....do I have to spell it out to you...it's so not funny now...
Dude, what do you think I'm doing, I'm countering you...chill Ashes, oops, Asher.
Its ok, this isn't a college brawl, Asher Roth. Oops AsherKade.
It's easy to understand, really. Like I said before:
We don't have any mechanism to become friends, do we? So I use fans for both, and don't see why it generates such a passion - five pages already LOL.
Actually, I know another reason why people are not your fan http://hubpages.com/hub/justone331
It is interesting that you state hat you spent countless hours writing sincere comments on ohers hubs. Your HP historical data does not show this; merely that you 'bulk fanned' many hubbers.
Realistically, to leave a sincere comment, one must first have read the hubs that one has commented on to be taken seriously.
So How Many Hubs have you Actually Read?
The more you read; the more response YOU Get.
Who Are YOU? Improve your Bio.. so we can see that you are not a Spammer (as you have done with the writing of your current hubs)
You are not going to set the world on fire in 5 minutes; so use that 5 minutes checking the works of those whom you would wish to fan you! This is where you leave a sincere comment.
If you are going to make forum posts, kindly be Sincere; in the case of your previous statement....
I am new so I don't know anything about you but will be glad to be a fan of yours.
It depends on the quality of the writing. If you don't write anything interesting then people won't become your fan.
i'm new but i have already 'become a fan' of a few people; and i did that because i either appreciated the helpful and useful comments they make in the forums or in their hubs, or i like their hub topics. i wouldn't expect them to 'fan me back' in kind, as this isn't a social networking site and no one has an obligation to 'show love' to anyone else, even if we comment and fan them.
Not everyone is going to fan each other back. If someone don't interest them, then they not going to do it just to humor them.
This is one aspect of hubpages that I seriously contest. I don't think that just because someone fans you, means that they HAVE to fan you back. Sure, it's a nice gesture on their part, but what if I don't want to be their fan? What if I simply am not into the type of writing they do? Isn't that the whole point of becoming someone's fan, to show that you appreciate and are sincerely interested in their PARTICULAR writing? And not just acquiring new fans for yourself? Sure, it is important to get fans, but this you-scratch-my-back, I-scratch-yours kind of fandom you talk about just seems to eliminate the real point of having fans in the first place!
Plus, you've only been here a couple of days and you have only written two hubs. Give it some time, and when you've actually written enough for people to determine if it is worth being your fan, see how many fans you get?
I will fan a person if I am truly a fan of their work. If you were to leave me a helpful comment, I would make an effort to answer you back, or thank you for the comment. Don't feel as if you not "getting love" because the same people don't fan you back. It is not like "friending". Some people just prefer to fan when they are an actual fan of the work.
Why not write more hubs?
Surely gaining a fan as a result of them enjoying your hub is much more rewarding then a pointless and meaningless statistic?
No offense but heres the facts.
Justone331 you have written 2 hubs and have only posted once on the forums as of right now.
What this indicates to me and other hubbers is that you are not an active member of the Hubpages community.
Therefore why would anyone become your fan. I see you are new as well which is another strike against you for most people looking to become your fan or read your hubs.
Since you are new the best thing you can do is continue to write and continue to mingle in the forums with others and be helpful and sincere.
You will have plenty of fans if you continue to put out a good hub each day and you stay active in the community.
Brian Fanslau AKA the Fonz
This gives me the opportunity for some shameless self-promotion.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Why-do-you-beco … s-in-a-row
Maybe I am a snob, but I only fan people who have either written very spectacular hubs that will help me in this business, or hubbers who have been publishing, and have similar interests to mine. /shrug
If I get a new fan, I will check them out by looking at their hubtivity. If they are becoming the fan of more than five people a day, regardless of comments left, then I am not interested in reading their work. If I see something of quality elsewhere, repeatedly, I might change my mind. One hubber in particular comes to mind here, who I am a fan of.
You all bringup some good points...But honestly people have to lighten up...this isnt americas got talent or night at the apollo...this is regular people writting regular blogs...and if someone spent the time to look at my page, fan me and write a comment pertains to my hub....common, the least i can do is show the love back...thats note being fake thats just showing them i apperciate them taking the time
but thanks for all te replys so far
Lol people need to lighten up, hmmm rewind to your original first post, jeeez I despair at times, I really do !
Wait until you have 200 hubs like many on here, and see how many comments you get per day (I get enough on 40+) you will soon be replying more and more to other peoples comments and leaving less and less of your own.
The best thing that you could do, and this isn't an "interesting point" or an "idea" or an "opinion", this is just pure fact.... is just get on with writing your hubs. If you write them people will find them.
Having the most fans doesn't make you the coolest or give your respect, it should just show that you have written something for almost everyone.
I wrote my first hub on 28th June 2009 and have 59 fans. I would say that about 5 of those have come as a result of my so called 'fanning' and the rest have come from people that have stumbled across my articles.
You cant buy fans, you cant force fans, you just get them.
A few additional points in relation to this quote:-
a) You have been here for 2 days, many have been here for 2 years. They know a hell of a lot more about hubpages than you, some of them are making $1000+ a month in revenue. Trying to tell people what hubpages "is" after two days of non participation is not going to win you fans.
b) Telling people that they need to 'lighten up' is incredibly rude and this is not going to win you any fans either, some people on here write for a living and they do not want to 'lighten up' at work. They 'lighten up' when there hubs are finished, their SEO is finished and they have checked their adsense. They don't do it on the demand of a faceless non entity on a forum.
c) These are not blogs, you spelt 'Writing' wrong, and "isnt" is spelt "isn't".
I don't think you'll find many people on HubPages who agree with you. Like the others have said, I only fan people whose writing I like and enjoy.
If you comment on my hub I will check out your hubs and return the comment if I have something to add to the conversation, but I won't necessarily fan you.
Well I just read the most appalling hub that I have seen in recent memory. Your Hub about Michael Jackson was absolutely dispicable. I will remember your name and never be your fan. Besides your attempt at humor in this hub, terrible.
I only fan if the person publishes content that I want to check out for whatever reason. I don't read every hub that the people I'm fans of publish, and I don't comment on every hub that I do read.
Since you've decided to bring it up, I would at present not fan you as I didn't find your hubs to be very funny. That is not meant as an insult, and I certainly don't think I'm any better than you - your stuff just didn't do it for me. That could change as you write more content.
Just my input on your topic, though, nothing more. This is not MySpace, the way I see it, and HP fans (to me) should be earned. But, maybe I'm just old-fashioned or something.
How To Get Fans.
1.Write good stuff.
2. Take part in the forums.
3. Don't make an idiot of yourself in the forums.
(Except if you are Badcompany99 )
4. Wait. the fans will come
Cheers, Eric G.
I'll fan more people when they start to write quality Hubs on topics that I find interesting.
Maybe one day you will find one of my hubs interesting
ps. I like your new profile pic relache.
And making fun of what others write will not get you many fans either.
why do you always have somthingnegative to say????
OP..... I would recommend shutting down your computer, coming back tomorrow, and getting on with writing...
Falling out with people like Relache (at least over stupid and pointless pot shots), who have been on hubpages since the very beginning, really is not the way to go about things.
If someone becomes my fan, I always look and see who fanned me, but if they have a miserable profile description, no profile picture and 2 or 3 hubs about just one particular subject that they claim to know in depth, but they don't, then I won't fan back because they talk a load of arse and they won't be here long!!
Like the new pic Waynet, jeez ya been to an interview ?
This is it right here in a nutshell. I too look at the profile of every single person who fans me (and that's over 900 now) but in the three years I've now been on HubPages, just barely over two dozen people have managed to catch my interest and keep it.
depends on what winning means to you....

Awww, did I just hurt someone's feelings. Someone cant play his own game to the last. Well, boo hoo, go suck on someone's breast bag.
i would hate to suck something not real...you can do that if ya want...
Ha ha ha ha Now that's funny! Now you've arrived. Welcome to the comedy club, have a seat, but dont get your ass burned! Its a hot seat.
again, you can dangle your nuts where ya want, but I know where mine belong and I don't suck things that weren't given by God...thanks for the invite anyway!
Oh he brings God into it. Is that all part of the heart of deception blow. Nip and tuck your nuts, it needs divine healing.
Apart from Pandaman because I was told he was my alter ego, I haven't fanned anyone except for those whose Hubs I have taken a shine to.
I don't think it is correct to just Fan people because they fan you.
Just my opinion.
I am the one who has the same experience,and i don't know why either.
i like a ton of people on here but I was getting abit crazy with the emails
so I bookmark lots of particular hubs so I can find them again
Thanks Rochelle, I do indeed appreciate fans no matter how many I collect (and still bemused how I've managed to collect so many..)
Hey people, this justone guy has the funniest hub I've ever read on Michael Jackson! Seriously, that hub just kills me. I give you a money back guarantee. And hey, while you're reading, watch out for this Tom Hanks joke - its brilliant!
I believe I have seen this question about 6 months ago from someone else **sigh** I see the question as been answered in 5 pages.
Not awfully long ago there was a post by HubPages adm, and it said that fanning because someone has fanned us isn't really the way fanning is supposed to work. Because I read that I often don't immediately fan someone (I occasionally do, but don't make a habit of it). Instead, I'll most often wait a while until I see more of their stuff. That way nobody has, "Fred became your fan. You became Fred's fan" on their Hubtivity (too often). When I'm reading, though, I do keep fans in mind first, and tend to read their stuff (and later become a fan, comment, rate up, etc.)
I truly do believe that to be a fan or some one you must be a fan of what they do this is not a social networking site and the site does not work like that. I might become a fan of a person because we share a common issue or a like but dont do it to get fands
I'm not trying to socialize...I don't even visit socialnetworking sites I just don't care about whether or not I should fan someone back or whether someone should fan me back and it amazes me that other people take it seriously. I mean seriously, who cares. Lame topic.
I always do as a matter of course although I don't always post a fanmail comment. That depends on time really and how much their profile and post on my site interested me.

Do you continue to read hubs of those you follow if they don't comment on your hubs?When you have limited time do you just comment on those who regularly comment on your hubs?
