Has anyone experienced this phenomenon?
You read a post or hub by someone you have not encountered before.
You become their fan.
And after you do, you see a list of hubbers who other fans of that person are a fan of.
And YOU are near the top of that list!
Kind of freaked me out the first few times it happened.
But then, I thought that it was because you tend to become fans of a certain type of person, so it's logical that people who are fans of yours, would also be attracted to become a fan of that person.
Any comments on this?
Or it is just a commonplace event.
Or am I just an idiot for even noticing this stuff?
(OK, here's a chance for everyone to have a free shot at me )
You're an idiot.
Not really, I just wanted to be able to get away with saying it.
Hmmm. Cryptic Lissie.
And I see that coincidentally you just happen to have 501 fans.
Ok, I'll pat you on the head and say "Congratulations"
I'll strive to live up to your newly found confidence in me
Frogs legs for breakfast. Yum. (Wore out 4 shavers getting rid of the bristles though)
I thought it was quite subtle actually Eric - but I forgot you are Tasmanian.... :LOL
Yer, we're pretty dumb down here in the land down under the land down under.
They put stuff in our water.
So Gamer Girl is getting righter with every passing second.
I didn't even know the land down under had a land down under.
Is that where Australia used to send all their dangerous criminals?
Well, consider this as your nugget of information for the day. Hope you don't choke on it!
And I'm descended from the worst of the baddest of the criminals.
I crossed the street today against the red light. That's the kind of rough and tough people we are down here.
So watch out!
You legless frogblogger.
I am not a frog. I am mostly limey with a little eyetie thrown in and I am married to a Jap/Yank.
I just live in Frog land
Seventy million French men would disagree with you
I am not nearly snotty enough to be French.......
Would you care to test that statement with a poll of Hub Pages spammers and religious afficionados?
And now I'm going to bed to cry myself to sleep after Gamer girl's viscious comments.
Nope its where all the dangerous criminals started out - but the brighter ones escaped and started out again in Sydney!
No no, it's where all the Australian Transvestites have their summer homes.
Oh gamer girl, you're SUUUUUch a BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIItch !
Actually, I have a friend who has even redder hair than yours.
Her name is Sarah. she's the cut-em-down queen of the southern hemisphere.
You don't want to meet her.
But if you continue to make me cry, I'll sic her onto you!
Im glad this question has arose!
I think its becasue of a few things, firstly, I won't beat around the bush and ill get straight to the point! Im not a guy to mince my words! the bottom liner is, that basically, the reason why this happens is because of something that i have no idea about!
Good luck in your quest to find the answer!
It's impossible to be snobbier than the French !
We've tried, and failed miserably.
Perhaps you should have tried a different area of France - I'm sure you could manage to be snottier than Southern Frenchmen?
I think I could get a ton more fans if I just went with an avatar of a hot chick.
Your avatar is the coolest one on hp. But damn man, have a sandwich or something!
I think you're right Shadecloth. Your fan numbers are pathetic.
Here's a new avatar for you that might help
Just check with Maddie before you start using it just to make sure it doesn't breach Hub Pages adult guidelines.
I am so glad you do not do that Shadesbreath. Your avatar is much more creative!
O, so now it's the avatar! Couldn't somebody've told me that before I spent so much time on writing hubs!

I've come to the conclusion that in order to get people to even look at your hubs, you must post in these forums. It may help get a few more fans, but if it doesn't, what have you lost. I've come here to hubber's hangout to see if anybody will become curious about my writing. I'm guessing I'm not...

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,...

What does HP want us to do with unpublished HubsI cannot find any guidance on this issue
by Eugene Brennan 4 years ago
I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

I wonder looking at the no of fans of some of the hubbers. What are the criteria of getting more fans?
