Hi anujagarwal. There is no easy way for you to check other than a manual count or asking a staff member, but I've just had a look, and you are currently following 136 people--the same number of followers you yourself have!
Sherri, I wasn't wondering at all - I know I'm a bit, or maybe very, blonde today. I just noticed I haven't got Excel, but Open Office Calculator. I just tried to paste the people I follow and the program crashed. I'll try again. Can we do what WE suggested using Firefox?
Have just downloaded Chrome, and yes, it works really well. Much faster than Firefox. I see it also has a spell checker here as I write this message, but all my words are wrongly spelled because it's looking for German spellings ... I'll have to fix that. Oh, and I know how many Hubbers I'm following now.
Thanks for the advice, Pcunix. Actually, with Firefox, I was beginning to think there was something wrong with my computer. Changing to Chrome feels a bit like swapping a Ford for a Rolls Royce. Hope it stays that way.
I was living on a ship for the past couple of weeks (moved out on Wednesday, thank God), and my internet connection was unbearably slow. I was using Firefox, but tried out IE just to see what would happen, and it was faster, believe it or not, even if not what could actually be called fast.
Yes, but then we'd have to ask on 'Suggest a New Feature', and then everyone would want to know why we need to know how many people we are following ... as though there were something wrong with wanting to know.
Camlo, you bring up a very interesting thought. A year ago, I printed a list of all whom I follow. I had two purposes in mind: 1, to weed out the list (lots of folks I followed hadn't done anything on HP for a long time), and 2, to acknowledge those whom I kept with a comment on one of their Hubs, a kind of a good will gesture.
It would have been helpful to have had a count to begin with, and even more helpful if there were a filter that went along with it where I could "quit following" those who had no activity, let's say, within the prior 6 months.
Not only is there nothing wrong with wanting to know, there are good reasons for wanting to!
I'm not sure that it's the specific version of Excel that keeps the pictures. It happens to me when I copy and paste into any MS program, including Word. I haven't really tried with other non-MS software.
It could be your buffer vs Windows' buffer, your Excel version vs mine, Chrome vs IE...it could be lots of things we haven't even thought about yet. It's amazing that data transfers as homogeneously as it does across all these platforms and applications.
Pcunix - my math is so bad, anything to do with numbers is hard for me. My math teacher at college is tearing is hair out - I've been 'learning' binomial formulae for the past two weeks, and still can't get it.
Interesting! The reason the number is different (for me) is that there is no line that corresponds with how many days/weeks/months ago the most recent hub was published. Without that line, an unpublished Hubber represents only four lines, instead of five. I don't get how Chrome gets around that. It happened the same way in the MS Word method I described above.
Highlight and copy all Hubbers you follow. Paste into a notepad (or other text file) to clean out the formatting, then select and cut that text.
Paste into a blank Word document. Use the Find and Replace function: Find ^p and Replace with ^t
Click Replace All. When it has finished, the box will report How many replacements. That will be the same number as the number in Excel that Pcunix mentioned above. Divide that number by 5 (and round up, if it's not a whole number). That gives the total number of Hubbers you follow.
How do some hubbers get so many followers in such a short space of time. Okay - some people write brilliant hubs on interesting topics but it still puzzles me. I expect someone will come back and say that I...
Not complaining but I don't understand hub. In an attempt to get involved, I started following a lot of Hubbers. Many of them followed me back and I am seeing a dramatic increase in viewing traffic for my hubs. I guess...
Do you find that you leave more fan mail for new hubbers you follow?I find that I leave more now that the window pops up after you click on the follow button. I don't believe it always happened that way, especially when...
