    What's your criteria for following a Hubber on hub pages?

    Do you really read the hubs before following a Hubber or do you follow just because he or she follows you?

    I always read at least one hub before I follow. I look at their list and find whichever one fits into the things I like and read it. If they do not write about anything I like I do not follow them. I have several followers who are great writers but do not write about things I care to read so I don't follow them. It would be unfair for them if I did follow because the whole point of following is to read their work. If I am not going to read it then basicly following them is like a lie. JMO

      Don't you think most hubbers follow only who follows them? For instance the people who are following me started following me only after I started following them, just because I liked few of their hubs!

      The majority of my followers I had no contact with prior to them following me. I have maybe less than 20 that I followed first. The people I follow first are people I run across while searching a certain topic.

    I read a couple of hubs and then read their profile to see what kind of articles they like to write. There are some people that I only read sometimes and others that I really enjoy following and reading their material.  I also try to read the most recently published hubs just to see new people and new hubs.

      I am sure that is true for some, but for me I read what I like not necessarily who follows me. It would be silly to try and keep up with people just because they follow me. I would hope the people who follow me do so because they like what they read.

    I only follow a hubber if I enjoy reading their hubs.  I will read a few and comment on some and then follow them normally.  When I first started I only followed those that followed me but now I like to venture out on my own smile  There are so many talented people on Hub Pages with so much informaiton!!!  It's hard to follow everyone.

    I take a quick look over the person's Hubs and if they write about stuff that's up my alley, I'll follow them. If not, I don't. There's no point in clogging up my news feed with Hubs I'm never going to read.

    I've started to become more selective with you I followed and I even unfollowed a few. It was nothing personal, it was just a means of keeping things uncluttered. When I get a new follower, I'll make a point of checking out their profile and a couple of their hubs. If their content interest me I follow them. If it doesn't I don't.

      I am not sure I would say most. There are a number that I follow that don't follow me. Also there are a number that follow me that I don't follow. But it probably depends on the individual and their approach to following.

    I normally follow hubbers who write on topics that interest me. Sometimes I find some hubbers writing on very interesting topics other than those normally interest me. I follow both these kinds.
