Is it Polite to Follow a Hubber That is Following You?
Out of courtesy, I follow any Hubber that follows me, but not all Hubbers seem to live by this rule. What do you think?
I do follow mos of my followers. But sometimes I don't check my new followers . Getting a Fan mail become easier for me to follow them. If you are posting good Hubs , people will start following you without any favor.
Following someone who follows you can be considered Hub-courtesy, but is not required for good Hub-etiquette. In my opinion following another author should only be done if you find their work interesting and as something you will read on a regular basis. If hubscore is of concern, following too many hubbers in a short period of time can actually lower your score, as it appears to be a little spammy.
Stick with following those who's work you enjoy, and feel honored that your followers find your work among their favorites.
I hope this helps!
To follow them online is fine to follow them in person is stalking.
Seriously, if you find their hubs interesting follow them but it is not impolite not to follow someone who follows you.
I have over 700 followers just here at hubs and about 500 at facebook, I can't remember twitters number and two web sites; a book just published and one I am getting ready to get out. It isn't possible to follow all that follow me and I agree that just choosing what you know you will read is about all you can or should do.
Remember that If you follow someone, and you do not read his hubs, you Can loose the Hubscore.
if you read my answers to questions or my profile, you will see that i don't say things to be polite or politically correct. i also would not follow someone just because they chose to follow me.
i think its good and friendly to follow your follower. i would love if you follow me...lolllzzzz

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

My feed is full of "shares" by a Hubber. HP recommends we do not share our own Hubs too frequently, why can't that apply to multiple sharings by the same Hubber for other Hubs. I don't think they can possibly read all those Hubs, I think it's done for other reasons.

Do you feel it's just plain rude for a hubber not to follow you back?

On Hubpages, if someone follows you, do you have to follow them back as courtesy?I have noticed a lot of people that have followed me that don't leave any comments. I wonder if I should follow them back as courtesy or not? The ones that do leave comments when they follow me are the ones...

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...
