    What would make you 'Unfollow' a person after you have been following them in Hubpages?

    I have not done it myself yet (unless I did it by mistake... Still new here smile, but noticed that button and have wondered what would make me 'unfollow' someone that I have been following?

    Good question, I would love to know too!

    When I was offended by the view points of the writer.

    I've heard that unfollowing inactive users can actually increase your hubber score. Apart from that they would probably have to significantly annoy me before I'd hit the button.

    Following totally inactive hubbers doesn't make sense. This is a good reason to unfollow them. Whether this will boost your hub score or not is not clear.

    I have not unfollowed anyone yet either, but I probably would if the person I was following stopped posting good hubs.

    Thanks for all the answers. Didn't know that inactive hubbers can decrease your score, or hinder your Hubber score!

    I have done this once or twice when I found the writer, though good, was on a different wavelength than me. One or two hubs may be exactly right for the time I have to read, and my interest. If, later, I find otherwise, I may unfollow. As far as inactivity is concerned, my scores have often gone up, and some times gone down when I was inactive. I don't hold inactivity against a writer, because life does get in the way, and you never know their circumstances, or what they may offer on return. That's based on "How Long is "Inactive?" If I unfollow someone I truly like, admire, appreciate, I wouldn't know they had a new hub out if I stopped following. I could name a few, but won't.
