Will you follow a person who has joined HubPages recently and has no hubs to his credit?
The new hub pages entrant is following you and s/he has not made hubs. Do you reciprocate the action and follow them irrespective of their activity on HP? I wait till I see the person come out with some hubs before I decide to follow them. Your thoughts on this please. Thank you.
Only if they showed promising feedback on people's hubs, questions or forums. Some people join HubPages just to leave their advice and partake in healthy conversation or debate. Some do it to spread a cause they're passionate about. I can only respect that and will follow people who show they have done so just to show they have my support and that I appreciate them. Effectively it is a sign of friendship.
However, I would never follow a complete newbie who hasn't even left one comment or anything because they may just quit in the next few hours.
I didn't know that there were people who joined HubPages to give their advice and suggestions without writing hubs. Thanks for the input. Cheers, Rema.
I only follow about 20 people on Hubpages. The idea of following is to show you're a "fan" of their work, not to get a follow in return. Anyone who leaves me a message or fan mail asking me to reciprocate is ignored and the fan mail deleted. If you like my work it's bloody rude to turn around and give me conditional fanship.
The only time I'll follow someone without good reason is if I know them personally.
I would follow them if they are my friends or who have signed up under me. Many are afraid to write a hub being that so many others have had their work stolen.
I will follow people if I am trying to track them for one reason or another. Mainly, I follow people who write on a subject that I like. If I like that person and who they are as represented by their profile then I will also follow them. I wouldn't normally follow somebody that hasn't written anything, but I don't mind following somebody that hasn't written anything if I see potential in them or if I want to help them write.
I guess you would have to determine if this person is worth following. If it seems like they are just trying to get followers via the I follow you follow method, which you see all the time on Twitter, then I would not follow them back.
I use to follow newcomers a lot if they had writing to interest me I did not want to lose track of them, but then I found out Hp penalizes you for following newcomers by lowering your score, or this is what I was told, so I rarely welcome and follow them as I did for almost two years.
I have not followed anyone who has never written a hub even if they made one comment on one of mine. There is no point in following them until they have at least one hub you can read.
