What's your reason behind commenting to a hub but not following?
I just noticed that there are hubbers who sometimes uncheck the follow checkbox as they comment on a hub, What could be the reason behind this? Is it a good thing, a bad thing, or neither?
neither, it could just mean they are following a lot of stuff already and can't keep up with it all.
I don't want to receive constant notifications. It clutters up my inbox. I can always check my activity and visit the hub if I'm curious. I do try to read and comment on a lot of hubs. This can add up to a lot of notifications if I'm not careful.
too many notifications. I've been unfollowing stuff that's been getting lots of comments.
I hate all the notifications clogging up my email inbox. I had over 150 notifications one day and from that time on I do not follow the hubs. If I forget to uncheck the box, I unfollow as soon as I realize it.
You might see a Hub that is interesting. However, if you check the person's profile page and title of other hubs, you may not have any additional interest, so there is no need to follow.
A lot of people follow almost everyone, hoping they will in turn follow them to get their numbers up.
I want my followers to be readers who read my work and not just a number. I also want to follow people whose work I am going to read and not get an excessive numbers about hubs that do not interest me. There is no disrespect intended in that statement. Everyone is not interested in all subjects. I have one follower who writes some interesting hubs, other are about craft projects, which hold no interest for me.
Neither. I do that all that time. It's mostly because if I have something nice to say about the person's Hub, say what I wanted to say, may check back to see if they approved the comment or said anything, but don't want to be getting notifications every time anyone and his brother makes a comment on that Hub. I keep track of what I do on here in my head, and my own "Hubtivity" serves a good memory-jogger for recent "doings". Other than that, I don't want to get notices about things like comments and forum posts on every Hub/forum thread/question I've posted something on.
I more often than not uncheck the box because you get tons of notifications that clog up the works.
