A couple of salesmen have posted as my fans. Being new, I am wondering if this is good or not? I had it in my mind, that 'fans' were like friends, people that liked your work. But I realize I get brownie points for having the extra fans, so I shouldn't complain. I'm not even sure why it bothers me at all. Please help me feel comfortable with this.
It happens all the time. We cannot control who joins our fan clubs. But we have the power to approve or deny their fan mail.
Probably because you are relatively new to online communities world.
It's OK, people become fans of others online for a number of reasons having nothing to do with whether they like the person or not. And since you can't control who becomes your fan, there is no point wasting your time worrying about it
You are lucky to have friends, some of us would take any old fan just to look like we are popular
Just keep writing good hubs, and your fans will naturally increase.
Your hubs are great.
Are you going to do one on Dog Food?
After being dogless for quite a while, we researched dog food before getting another dog and was horrified by the stuff that goes into it.
Our beautiful 18 month old German Shepherd has never eaten canned food in his life, and only recently we started giving him a bit of dry food mixed in with his normal diet of raw chicken, beef, vegetables, and other healthy stuff.
Gawn Fishin - keep writing! I haven't been fishing in quite a while, but hope to do so before too much longer.
Thanks Amy Jane, and Uninvited.
Eric, I will work on some more good hubs. I will put one together on dog food too if you like, I have some information on that.
There isn't much healthy stuff going into cans whether destined for pets or human consumption
I joined your fan club too. Your hubs are excellent.
I guess while not exactly being 'undesireable', I feel those hubbers who become fans of everyone, regardless of hubs, aren't as valuable to me as those who become my fan because they genuinely liked my work. But that's just me :-)

What if you just go down the list of all hubbers and automatically fan everyone. I know in a lot of sites this is considered a negative thing to do and it will drop your reputation or whatever. What happens to fan whores on hubpages? Someone who knows please tell.

First, why does anyone go proactively looking for fans?Do they? There are people who joined after me and have, at best, questionable quality hubs, yet seem to have fans in the double digits. To me, that can only be the result of them proactively working on getting fans. Why?There are hubs here,...

I thought by being fans of other people, they would be my fan too. How do I get more fans?

I invited a friend here a while ago and it seems that there are only two frinds that have join his fan club. Now I do notice that top hubbers join new hubbers fan clubs all at once--only my friend seems to have been missed. He needs to become known. He has writers block about who...

So I am fairly new here and have written a few hubs, but to my surprise, no one has found my work yet. I can't seem to grow my fan base. I read a lot of everyone elses stuff and comment on everyones hubs, but I just get ignored. How do you make friends on here? How do you get your work noticed and...
