When I joined, I started following one hubber, tonight I have found others I would like to follow. Originally I clicked "follow ----" and that was it. Tonight I have been asked for a verification code, is this right? I am sure this didn't happen the first time I did it.Thanks.
Seems so. Don't panic, just copy the code, hit enter and you'll be fine. Welcome to Hubpages too
Sometimes it happens. It's OK. Go ahead !
I like your name it's very Latin.
Welcome to HubPages! Feel free to fan whomever you choose. That code you speak of is a new addition HubPages has added. I have too run across this fanning others.
I hope you enjoy your time here.
Thank you all! Shall go away now and follow follow follow!!!
I would suggest using the Hub Hop button too found under your 'My Account' tab. Welcome to HubPages!
@ Myownworld. Why does following people affect you hubscore negatively? I would think it would be a good thing, as you participate in the community?
It's only bad if you 'spam follow' which is when you fan hundreds of people simply to get people fanning you back.
You will often notice these people as having less than 10 hubs, no meaningful forum posts, and over 100 followers, i think they feed off each other!
If only they understood the tactic doesn't work.
I don't know, but maybe its to discourage people from following hundreds just to get followed back. If they don't encourage it then I guess it gets people to follow others because they are genuinely interested. That's the only thing I can think of anyway- but I'm no expert!

From time to time I may follow couple of hubbers, but may end up quit following small number of them, if I see they don't even care about my fan mails after many days(e.g, one was disapprove surprisingly, or leave it for weeks there without approving them, it feels disrespectful). Yesterday I quit...

Where is the thread to introduce yourself to the HP community? I heard a lot of good things about the people here. I think saying "Hola" would be a good way to get started here.

Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?

Hi, I have recently joined and it is going to take awhile to learn the customs and rules.Is the following fellow hubber interaction genuine or are they trying to spam my account? Are they just trying to direct traffic from me to them?"I wanted to welcome you to the hub pages. I also...
