Before following someone, at least you should read his/her hub or profile. I think, there are many reason rather than his or her beautiful face to follow him/her.
I only like to follow people who have Hubs that are interesting to me. I never follow anyone without first reading what they've posted. All it takes is one good hub that I like and I will follow them. I like checking my email in the evening and seeing all the great new hubs that have been posted. I do try and read some of them, but there isn't enough time in the day to read them all.
If I find the hub interesting, no need to read all his hub to follow him. Same here as other hubbers answer.
I only follow people whose hubs I like. That doesn't mean however that I read everything they write. Same with me, I have a large number of followers who don't read everything I write.
But I agree, at least find out who the person is and what they write before following them.
I follow people who follow me as a courtesy, but only people who are regular hubbers. I also follow people who's work i find interesting and are useful to me aswell.
I do not believe in following someone who's avatar is attractive.
But I think, beautiful and attractive face is a big factor for following someone. You may called this... X-Factor.
But you have no idea if that is the person or not
You're following for the wrong reasons, then. This is not Facebook. A follower is not a friend.
If you follow people out of politeness or because you think they look cool, you'll soon find your follow lists gets totally out of control - and as Peter says, you run the risk of being penalized. If HubPages thinks you're following indiscriminately, they'll cut your score.
I have always read the hub before I follow anyone - even if they are already following me. I always read the people who follow me, and so far, they have all been great hubs, and I have followed them. I hope that they have all read what I have written...
I also follow people who don't follow me because I have "hopped" to their hub...
Most of the people find beautiful face. But very few of them find the right thing good quality.
A connection, be it shared humor, attitude, or interesting hubs, is the reason I follow fellow hubbers. It just happens that it is also a courtesy as they usually follow mine, as well. Definitely more meaningful for me, and hopefully for those who follow Teddy and me.
no I usually look over the profiles and read some hubs before deciding..
Hi, do glance at the profile and look at the numbers of hubs they have. I think if someone has more than 50 hubs then they are serious hubbers and they will have quality content. If someone follows me then I also follow them as I want to be as much friendly as possible with people, i see it as a way of saying thank you for following me and it also helps the hub community to grow and get more interactive. Thanks.
It seems me that, yours one is the best comment yet. No doubt you have a good habit. ("I want to be as much friendly as possible with people.") I just like your speech. Thanks.
well since you have 48, you are not a serious hubber? LOL
Don't even think of following people without reading their hubs.
I ruined my hubscore doing this and I shared this in a hub I wrote called How New Hubbers Ruin Their Hubscore.
I never have. I follow people becaus eI am interested in their chosen topics for their hubs (eg. this hubbers favourite topics are...) and waht they say are their background in their bio.
Well, the picture there is what brought me to this forum. . . .It's an attention grabbing sort.
Honestly, I've know LOTS of truly beautiful women - but women that attractive. . .often just don't WANT to use their picture online because they KNOW what sort of attraction it causes.
I follow new hubbers without reading his/her article or profile, just to encourage them. During my early days so many hubbers had encouraged me so I have that responsibility. For older hubbers, I first read their work, write some comments and then click the follow link. Sometimes, when I read interesting profile and exciting hub title, I follow without reading the hubs.
I 'discover' hubbers new to me by hub hopping, through forums or by a comment someone left on a hub I'm commenting on. But I don't follow someone indiscriminately, whether or not they are following me. I read their profile and a few hubs before I decide to follow or not.
After that, I may not read every one of their hubs, but do try to read enough to keep up the 'relationship.'
No. I follow someone because I find their articles interesting and learn that the hubber publishes good hubs. I follow that person because I want to be notified whenever s/he publishes new hubs or topics. If you follow people without reading their works, then you're not making sense out of that because you cannot interact with them. Interaction between hubbers is being bridged by WRITING AND READING.

Just a quick question, as above, does having followers help your hubs/hubscore?
by Andrew Smith2 years ago
I've just reached a landmark of 100 followers (yay, me!), which might not seem like much, but it's built up pretty slowly over time, and I've made sure to interact with everyone I'm following regularly (106 now),...

Hi All, So, this might not seem in the spirit of hub pages comeraderie, but I am a little uncomfortable with having a particular member follow me. The name is ZAGOOTO, and he has no profile information, no hubs, but 11...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is...

I noticed recently after I followed someone in error, that I couldn't stop following them. Is this a new feature that when we follow another hubber, it's for ever now? Because this function is not working!
