Do most followers "like" a writer only because he/she maintains a great number of followers?
Many could say that a writer is mostly followed because he/she has a huge number of followers and not because of the content of their articles or hubs. What is the reality of this?
I follow a writer because of his/her articles which touch on topics that I am interested in. I am not particular about how many followers does a writer have .
I'm not sure but I hope that's not the reality. What would be the advantage? I follow people who I can learn something from or whose hubs I find interesting, well-written, and/or exemplary.
Hi Janshares. Thank you for answering. It is interesting because I do think the same way you and Globe does, but once I had the experience of a healthy group of writers asking among themselves to vote up, etc. to enable a writer to "win" !st place.
I follow a writer who has articles that interest me or who has made several insightful comments on some of my hubs to which I read and comment on theirs and have learned quite a bit from them. I am not concerned with how many followers they have or how many they follow. I am, however, cautious when I see someone very new with 1000+ people they're following. I want to interact with someone who wants to interact by commenting and reading - not just to be a number.
Actually, I'm generally deterred by following a writer if they have a great many followers. It's the part of me which is wanting to support the under dogs, I guess. But yes, as KDeus said, they need to have hubs which are interesting and informative, especially if they have a unique view point, even if I may not agree with it.
I sure hope that's not the case. Hopefully our fellow Hubbers are not so shallow as to create a popularity contest. Personally, I don't care whether a writer has 1 or 1,000 followers: I follow writers that intrigue me, are talented, have something to say, can teach me something... I guess I don't even look at the number of existing followers a person has; it's certainly not one of my criteria for following someone.

I'm not saying this in the context of anything suggestive or that women bat their eyelashes and get followers. But, over the years of my online life I noticed that most women band together, while men usually go as a...

My feed is full of "shares" by a Hubber. HP recommends we do not share our own Hubs too frequently, why can't that apply to multiple sharings by the same Hubber for other Hubs. I don't think they...

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...

I've just reached a landmark of 100 followers (yay, me!), which might not seem like much, but it's built up pretty slowly over time, and I've made sure to interact with everyone I'm following regularly (106 now),...
