I was reading some hubs earlier, and without realising, I clicked follow on my own profile. I am now following myself. I can't seem to delete myself from my followers. Sorry for being such an idiot, but does anyone know how to correct this?
no,but that's funny!
there's a another topic about blocking followers..maybe hp team can make that happen?
I just hope you weren't reading one of your own hubs and didn't realize it. Not THAT would be funny. One good thing about following yourself though....you'll always know where you're going and everything will seem very familiar!
oops! i did the same thing the other day and felt really embarrassed! Hope you managed to sort it out! hehe
I'm just off to sit in the naughty step now and write my punishment excercise - " I must not be such an idiot in the future." (If it works I will be very surprised!)
I did that by accident but it told me I couldn't follow myself
We need to transfer this thread to the philosophy forum because it now begs the question: Are you the follower or the followee? It is vital to our society that we solve this question.
Well i just followed you so if you found a way to remove your self by now at least i just filled the empty spot
Nothing wrong in following yourself, you're great and obviously if you read your own hub, then you seen that.
Thank you everyone for your help - you are all very kind. I never did fathom how to unfollow myself, I almost gave myself brain drain at the weekend trying to solve the problem, but hey ho! (on hindsight, I should have left myself some fan mail!!) I must have had a senior moment, I seem to be having a lot of these lately. I will today read some hubs from each of you and leave comments etc - that should keep me out of trouble for a few hours. Smiley face (cos I don't know how to do one on the computer - i told you I was an idiot!!).
Every self-respecting person needs to do that once. I even took a screenshot of my hubtivity when I did it.
You shouldn’t worry much about it. It happens to many of us.
When I first joined a boarding school, it looked as if I was the only one not receiving mails, so I decided to send myself a mail. The mail went out and then after a few days it came back to me.
Earlier you used to get a message saying you cannot follow yourself.. wondering whatever happened to that. That could prevent such things from happening..
When you are following yourself it is safe - at least you know what you are capable of

Why do followers follow us, and do not support our work?For the amount of followers, I follow and the comments I revieved something on my hubs ...definitely is not adding..up. so once again why are you following me?

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 Hub didn't like this since they took my score from 89 to currently 78 and...

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push my numbers over 200. That is great. However, most of these people have not only...

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), checking out new hubs, etc. It made me consider an interesting question:How do...

Do you follow hubbers without reading their writing first?If so how do you decide to follow them? On what criteria do you base their worthiness to be followed by you?There could be obvious answers but each individual can answer for themself.

I presently follow 1,975 hub members. My followers are 1,436. I remember hearing something about it being best to unfollow those that are not active on your hubs or that hold no further interest for you.So, I've been doing this. My question is: Have I been mislead or am I...
