A general rule of thumb for following hubbers?
I've been wondering, if there is a general rule of thumb for following hubbers, like follow those you follow you back and comment on your work? What about for those who aren't active on Hub Pages , say for over a month and longer? That seems to be the case for most of my hubbers I've following. I didn't see anything on the FAQ about it, other don't follow a big block of followers that you can't catch up with. Any ideas?
I just follow people I think are interesting. I don't necessarily follow someone because they are following me. Once followed, it really doesn't matter to me how active they are. You never know what is going on in someone's life.
If I see a hub that interests me, I go to the author's profile and check out the rest of their hubs. If interesting, I follow. When a new person follows me, I look them up and see if their hubs interest me before following. To sum it up. I only follow hubbers who write on topics that interest me.
I do the same thing as Jennie here. What I have find more difficult is when to choose to unfollow. I once had to unfollow because a hubber reshared his old articles too often. This clogged the feed and I could not see new material from others.
Can a person share his articles here? I don't think so. Sharing one's own articles are not allowed here even for one single time.
I think it is a kind of courtesy to follow those who are following you. You can thereby give support to them and inspire them, if they happen to be recently joined members or less active members. You need not follow each and every activity of them, but may support and inspire them.
As a general rule, we follow mostly those who are inspiring and good writers. But think of yourself. If you are following too many, you will be expecting a good share of them to back follow you. Won't you get discouraged if most of them do not follow you. So you need to keep your own parameters.

Hi, still new, still learning. Quick question.Is there a rule of thumb for an ideal hub length or for splitting a hub into two seperate parts?

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.

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...

Do you follow hubbers without reading their writing first?If so how do you decide to follow them? On what criteria do you base their worthiness to be followed by you?There could be obvious answers but each individual...

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...

Prompted by this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/66024?p … ost1449521, I'd be interested to know if it would be possible to have a feature that tells us how many Hubbers we are following.
