Do you follow back everybody that follows you?
Just curious to know if hubbers follow people because they follow them
I do. Even though I only have one follower. I think its common courtesy.
Depends on the article if the topics he/she create is about SATAN i will not follow .If someone follow me they believe in me.Im new here i will create great article soon!
No. The point of followers here on HP is to have your work read and shared. If I do not plan on reading someone's work then why follow? The number means nothing if those followers aren't supporting your work. However if someone follows me I then go to their page and see what they write about. If they write about something I like then I follow them.
Also when I get to their page I look to see if they are just following everyone. If they are I will not follow back. I've had followers who when I went to their page they had followed hundreds of people in a matter of a few hours of joining. Those people only hope to get followers back and have no intention of reading all of those people's work.
I follow people who write things I like to read. Sometimes that means I follow back. But if somebody is just cranking out terrible work at too high a volume, I feel no obligation to be notified every time they slap something onto the internet.
yeah, i do too. I follow them back, leave a comment and read their hubs. They read mine in return . Help to boost my viewers
I do. I just think it is common courtesy. Someone says hello, you respond. Unless the hubber is offensive in some way I don't see the need to be snobbish.We all write at different levels and abilities and the better writer may be able to help the less experienced writer improve. I am sure that hubbers do not read all the hubs they are following anyway. Can one really read all the hubs1of ,000 hubbers?
If someone commented on my hub and followed me, I'd be gladly following back. Since my short time here, I found great writers with interesting hubs and I've followed a few to read about topics that interests me. Some didn't follow me back, and I don't expect them to. The last thing I want is for anyone I follow to think that I am following just to be followed back or I won't read their hubs. I think that the basis of following and follow back on Hub Pages should be to establish friendship with fellow hubbers, share similar interests, read each others work, encourage new people, share ideas, word of encouragement, etc.
Yes, I follow those who follow me back and I even follow those who don't follow me.
Yes I do, because they follow me and also to those having great hubs and useful content for me. Its good to follow someone, it gives you a chance to make someone happy. But I follow them who deserve to get followed by.
I do not follow all of my followers. Before starting on HubPages, I read the entire Learning Center, and this what they say about following:
You should only follow people who you have a genuine interest in keeping up with. By following a Hubber you are saying that their activity on HubPages is noteworthy or interesting to you. Following excessively or indiscriminately may result in a low Hubber score.
For this reason, I truly only follow those Hubbers whose Hubs I enjoy.
Yes, I follow back. As a new hubber, this helps me to understand the tone, style and content that other people are writing; exposing myself to as much of this as possible can only enhance my own hubs. Additionally, if someone has taken the trouble to find out what I write about and finds it interesting enough to follow me, then it's just good manners to follow them back.
I do not, and I don't on any social network either.
I know you're only looking for a yes or no, and you probably know what I'm about to say, but just in case you're curious about my reason.
I made the mistake of doing that on Twitter, then I found that I had an unwieldy stream of messages that I couldn't read, nor were many of them relevant to me.
The purpose of following people is to curate a stream of content that you want to read and respond to. If you follow everyone, then you'll end up with digital anarchy in your feed.

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

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...

I am fairly new here, but what I've learned is that most people follow to get followers. (I was that person). What I discovered was that, if I follow you I am required to read your hubs when published.My suggestion; don't follow to be followed. Follow because you genuinely are interested in the...

On Hubpages, if someone follows you, do you have to follow them back as courtesy?I have noticed a lot of people that have followed me that don't leave any comments. I wonder if I should follow them back as courtesy or not? The ones that do leave comments when they follow me are the ones...

Do people really read the hubs of people they follow?Is it just me but I tend not to follow too many hubbers because I would never have time to write if I read all the hubs they submit. Perhaps I’m being naive here … but it seems disrespectful to follow them and then not read their work. Do...

Just a quick question, as above, does having followers help your hubs/hubscore?
