Can we remove certain followers? Im not comftable with one of my followers ,what do i do?
Hmm, why though? Having followers would mean more views and it would show that your articles are high quality and credible. I'd say the more followers would me more revenue.
You cannot sell your conscience for following; if you are not comfortable with someone, as in real life, you can part ways with them. Just stop following them, and this should invite reciprocity.
Go into your account at the top of your profile page. Under favorites, click hubbers you follow. Underneath each name you will see "quit following".
If you're talking about Fan Mail on your front page that you don't like, you can delete this by clicking "My Account" then "Fan Mail" otherwise I don't think you can get rid of a fan/follower...but surely it doesn't harm having this fan's icon there?
You cannot remove followers, but if the follower for some reason is stalking you or harassing you you can report the follower to Hubpage team.
If he?she writes comments/fan mail that is offensive deny them and delete them forever.
In truth you cannot stop anyone from following you!
Im not trying to sound alarming . He is following me, he came to me. I welcome everyone to my hub with open arms but by the looks of his home page...it may be actualy harmfull to allow him to follow me. He knows how to hack into anything and to anyones "stuff" ...isnt this alarming to yall, because it didnt sit to well with me...thats all.Or am i over reacting?
Why would you want to remove a follower? Someone asked this question in the Hub help forum. As sofs said, if someone is cyber-stalking you, report them to the HubPages team immediately.
Do you think this hubber is somehow, not sincere in his followership (I just invented the word 'followership') of you? In other words, to you interpret the 'follow' as somehow sarcastic or baiting?
Do you not like their political and/or social views -- do you find this hubber to be a bit of a verbally aggressive "reactionary"? I ask these questions because I'm curious as to why some people have been inquiring about how to remove followers.
You know, Real_Words, you may think I'm being sarcastic as I say this (but I promise you I am not), but perhaps following you and getting exposed to your writing and your presumably much more sensible, level-headed viewpoints, might serve as a civilizing influence on this person.
Good luck and I hope everything works out. You really look bummed out about the matter in your profile pic. Kidding!
yes but clicking the option 'quite following' underneath the hubbers you follow.Its in your account at the top of your profile Page.

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're...

What has your experience been. Did you notice that the more people you followed, the more people followed you? Did you ever start following people just because you wanted more followers? I have been pretty selective in...

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push...

I want to quit following some hubbers. Will they be notified if I do it? Will HP penalize me the way they penalize spam follower?

Ok so four people so far are "following" me and I would like to know what exactly that means. Are they just keeping track if I write new hubs or is it something more? I'm not sure why they are following me...
