What are your reasons for unfollowing a hubber?
I went to the list of hubbers I follow, and I found out that many are not active on hubpages. I unfollowed everyone who has not published anything in the last 4 months. I also unfollowed the hubbers who do not comment on my hubs.
Yes, I do about the same as you and then too sometimes someone I really liked will make vulgar hubs and I quit them even if their other hubs are OK. If they talk hateful or mean I also stop following them because even if I don't like someone I do not talk hateful or mean to them, maybe about a subject but not to that person. I just quit or ignore those. People I would not choose for real friends are just not someone I want to follow. I never stop because someone stops reading me though if I like them, apparently they just don't like my writing for whatever reason but if I enjoy theirs then I do and it benefits me. This is a busy place too and we don't always get notices and haven't really stopped reading someone but just lost track but will catch up eventually.
I've not published for quite some time as time is an issue. But, I'm active here. So, I unfollow people who are not active in anyway on the forums nor on others hubs.
I follow three kinds of hubbers: 1) those from whom I think I can learn something, 2) those who write content that I'm interested in, and 3) those who are new and need encouragement. Thanks for asking. Sandra Busby
I unfollow for inactivity mostly.
I don't unfollow for not commenting on my hubs because some of the people I follow don't follow me so they are not expected to read or comment on my hubs. I have over 600 followers and I don't read them all and comment so it works both ways. Not all hubbers are commentors either so I give and take there.
I will unfollow a hubber who is rude to other hubbers or if I find that I have lost interest in what the hubber writes.
Just as I usually follow someone who is kind enough to follow me, I unfollow if someone has disappeared from my list (only 1 so far, fortunately!). I have found only one hubber to object to, but that was on hub-hopping, so not someone I followed; however, I would unfollow someone who's rude or uses inappropriate language.
Like you, I also unfollow if a Hubber has not been active for months. I unfollowed a Hubber who was filling the Feed page with shares every day. It was annoying. Also, like Jackie, I unfollow if a Hubber publishes vulgarity or uses profanity in Hubs or comments. I prefer not to associate with people like that even on the internet. I do not follow someone just because they follow me. I follow if I am interested in that person's Hubs. It does not matter to me if someone comments on my Hubs; people are busy. I seldom leave comments anymore due to time constraints but so read and vote on every one I follow.
I follow people who do not follow me, so responding to my hubs doesn't matter. But I will unfollow people who are inactive. That is my primary reason for unfollowing someone. If the person stops writing anything that interests me, I will also unfollow that person. Otherwise, I don't make a change.
I don't unfollow that often, but sometimes I'll check those I follow and notice they're no longer active, or that I'm simply not interested in what they're writing. A few times I've stopped following because they're simply too abrasive and rude. I like to follow a wide range of writers, so sometimes I'll unfollow a few I'm not reading and follow new hubbers I discover.
I have not done this yet, but then again I am simply too busy with all the things I am involved with to put energy on that kind of thing. I read a blog if it has interest to me. Some people read my blogs all the time. Some all occasionally. I get some scholars that use my blog occasionally. I am okay with that.
I don't have to worry about following anyone too much because I'm rarely spoken to on Hubpages. I guess it's because I had an account here for six months and I only posted four hubs. I'm extremely busy with running an events website and other writing jobs so no I don't have a lot of time to post as often as some people can. Personally, I don't think I would unfollow someone for inactivity because there is life outside of Hubpages and people can get tied up.
I would unfollow someone whom I felt made me feel out of place by only posting comments on the hubs of those who have the higher hubscore, the most accolades and the most followers. I try to treat people who take the time to read what I write with respect so I expect that in return. Another reason, I would unfollow a hubber is because sometimes people develop circles on websites like Hubpages and they act like they don't want to be bothered by "outsiders" so the only thing I can do is unfollow.
I do not follow many hubbers only because I do not have to unfollow them later. I have unfollowed a couple of people for inactivity, filling up the feed and because I had made a mistake thinking that I would like to read what they publish. I follow not to get comments but to read and comment on their work, but sometimes you just don't have the time.. for all that.
If the hubber comment or not comment on my hub its there wish 'coz even I do read a hub but don't feel to leave comment but I do vote and move. Recently I unfollow one of the hubber because I always use to leave comment and I usually like the response what the author of the hub is giving , but constantly I noticed that particular hub author is ignoring me and leaving response to other hubbers that make be annoyed and I Unfollow that hubber.

What makes you unfollow a hubber?

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...

When I first started out with hubpages I followed hundreds of people, because I wanted them to follow me back, because I though that's how you get readers to come to your hub. I recently found out that following a lot of people reduces your hubscore, plus I cancelled my updates on the hubbers I...

I noticed recently after I followed someone in error, that I couldn't stop following them. Is this a new feature that when we follow another hubber, it's for ever now? Because this function is not working!
