    I have noticed that at the end of my hubs the usual follow box is now unfollow on all of my hubs. This happened at the same time as I activated the sub domain. Can someone tell me why please. I was aware I would lose tweet and facebook numbers but now where I had say; 15 followers it now says 15 unfollow. I understand people unfollow but this is across over one hundred hubs and the exact same number went to unfollow from follow within a day. Thank you in advance.

    Hey Gabriel,

    The reason YOU see "unfollow" is because you are now following your own hubs. HP made a ridiculous change in formatting.

    Under "my account", "email setting", you now have a box that is checked for you to follow your own hubs, so you will receive emails for those who comment on the hubs.

    I saw this same thing. You can click on "unfollow" and stop following your own hubs, and you should still receive emails notifications for comments left on your hubs.

    I have unfollowed all my hubs and still get email notifications about comments on my hubs. I found this change to be ridiculous.

      Thank you for your quick response Cagsil
      I know I sound dim asking this but how do I get rid of it; 15 plus unfollow doesn't look particularly engaging. It looks like everyone got bored and left the building.
      So confusing!

        It only looks that way to YOU, because YOU are following the hub.

        If a reader looks at the hub, it will show that 15 people are following the hub.
