How do you know who is following you?
When you get a new follower, how do you find out who it is? I used to be able to see in 'My Activity' now I do not have a clue.
On your profile page look under "Followers." You should also get a notification in your e-mail.
I do not check my email very often (I think it has been months) so I suppose I will have to do that if I want to see the list. Going through the list of who is following me is too time consuming. I do prefer when I could see it on the 'My Activity'.
Look behind you, ..... just pulling your leg a little there
JThomp42 answered your question perfectly.
I look on my feed and in my email. I get an email when I get the follower and on my daily update, it tells me. On my feed, it tells me every time I get a new follower.
I did not think of checking the feed. That might be easier than the Follower page. Checking email is not my thing but I suppose I will have to if I do not see it in my feed.
You probably have your email settings set to not send them. Go to Edit Profile, on the left in a black box is email settings. Click on that and go through to make sure you are receiving the emails notifying you. Hope this helps.
I would except I do not remember what answer I put as the security question. I usually remember but I am at a complete blank. I know it is something obscure - I never answer safety questions with a sensible answer - I do get notifications though.
Thanks guys. I went to see "followers" and noticed that some are stated "Follow" . I prefer the old way where i can see the new followers in the My Activity page.
I have checked my email and I have nothing in there that tells me who has begun to follow me of late. Now all can do is check the feed, I suppose.

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 has your experience been. Did you notice that the more people you followed, the more people followed you? Did you ever start following people just because you wanted more followers? I have been pretty selective in the people that I follow and I am totally happy with all of the awesome Hubbers...

When you are notified of a new follower, how do you respond?Do you go to their page and check them out? Do you read any of their hubs? Do you mke sure that they are legitimate? I have a lot of followers who seem to be advertisers. Hubpages are really good about weeding them out but I do see many...

I pretty much thought that this went out of fashon about 6 or 7 years ago. However over the last week, I have seen several people operate on the basis that if they add you, then you must add them. Someone has just also written that in their profile - that s/he will add whoever adds him/her.So...

Do any of you have people following you, but they have not writen any hubs, yet these people...have some 5-50 people following them? And, do you think that it is possible that these people may copy hubs and try to pass them on as their own?

Ok so four people so far are "following" me and I would like to know what exactly that means. Are they just keeping track if I write new hubs or is it something more? I'm not sure why they are following me either, I just logged in one day and saw them there.
