Can you filter search who you are following?
I have just hit 2 years here and know that many I followed at the start are no longer active, or possibly not writing on subjects I am interested in. Is it possible to search who you follow for those that have not been active in a long time? Or on topics, posts etc ....
You can certainly search your list of followers. If you have switched to the new profile, you will find it beneath your avatar. The first item on the list is: My Content. You can click on: Following. A complete list of those you follow will appear with options to edit.
You can also reach this information by hovering over your user name, choosing: My Account, Activity, Following, Hubbers you Follow.
Doing some pruning? Probably not a bad idea.
I think I can answer half of this.
For the active part, yes you can filter.
Go to your account/hub statistics page. Click on Following in the links at the top. Then click on Hubbers You Follow in the links on the left side.
You shoulc now be looking at a list of everyone you are following. At the top of this it will say in bold letters Hubbers You Follow.
Beneath this it will allow you two sort options.
The first option is Hubbers which I believe is an alphabetical listing
The second option is recent hubs which sorts by the date of the last hub published. This is the one I think you want.
If you sort by recent hubs the most recently published hubs will be at the top. This means that you can scroll all the way to the bottom and see who hasn't posted in a year or two.
I'm not sure if there is a way to filter who you're following based on their subjects. At least if there is I haven't found it yet.

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're following?Do you guys really think this makes people want to read and comment on...

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.

How do some hubbers get so many followers in such a short space of time. Okay - some people write brilliant hubs on interesting topics but it still puzzles me. I expect someone will come back and say that I should have read something somewhere that makes it obvious - so apologies if...

Before following someone, at least you should read his/her hub or profile. I think, there are many reason rather than his or her beautiful face to follow him/her.

Not complaining but I don't understand hub. In an attempt to get involved, I started following a lot of Hubbers. Many of them followed me back and I am seeing a dramatic increase in viewing traffic for my hubs. I guess Hub didn't like this since they took my score from 89 to currently 78 and...
