    Do you think it's wrong to follow someone just for the sake of getting someone to follow you back?

    Sometimes I see people with a lot of potential with only one hub and love helping new people get going with something they may not know a whole lot about. A lot of people write one hub and never come back to hubpages ever again. One comment and one follower can change all of that for a person. I got a lot of support and feedback when I first started and it has kept me on everyday working hard to keep people happily reading. So sometimes it is friendly to follow someone you see potential in.

    Honestly, everybody on Hubpages does it for that reason. While I don't like it personally, it does manage maximum viewership for my hubs.

    I don't think it's wrong; it's just how the platform works.

    It is not the right reason to follow others.
    I only follow people who write hubs that I enjoy reading & are not boring so I don't expect people to follow me if they don't like my hubs either /

    Not necessarily. There can be mutual benefits for both parties in following each other. I tend to only follow people whose work I enjoy - they don't have to believe the same things I do - but if I like what they write then I follow them. If they give me a follow back then it's a bonus. But I can understand people who are new and want to build up their portfolio on hub pages following hubbers and hoping that they will in turn follow them back.

    It is a mistake to do this if you don't read the hubs of the person yu follow. I put it all in a hub I wrote called How New Bubbers Ruin Their Hubscore

    I have been writing for a month now and probably wouldn't have had the same motivation to write without some really great followers.  I have other followers who are following me to get one more follower - otherwise I can't see why in the world they would follow me.

    Choose who you follow (like Peter Owen says about new "Bubbers" smile ,  and try to read the hubs of people you follow.  If you follow too many people you won't have time to read forums, interesting questions, do research on topics that interest you, write good hubs, have a life........
