Just above the comments box, there is a relatively new feature, labeled "unfollow" with a number in the box. What is that? Is it telling me how many people have stopped following? If so, why does it matter if someone is not following a particular hub?
Going back from the 'comments you made' utility would seem to be all that is needed to 'follow' any given hub.....
I never even noticed that box until you pointed it out!
I think it is has to do with when you comment on a hub, you are automatically following that hub's comments, unless you remember to untick the box when you commented, so when your inbox gets filled up with other people's comments and you really can't be bothered with it, you untick 'follow this hub' as offered in the emails, then that must show as an 'unfollow', I think.
That's an option to basically stop receiving updates about your article -- me, and everyone else, sees the button but it's green and says "follow". If we choose that, then we'll get updates such as when people comment, and we will see the "unfollow" option. Since you're the author, you're automatically following
Well, since I set my global settings to not automatically follow particular hubs, (I prefer to do that from the 'comments you've made' screen), I don't get much in my inbox.
In fact, all I opted to receive are the weekly notifications dealing with HP blogs, news, etc....everything else was just too much to sort through.
With the global setting capability now live, that follow/don't follow checkbox is irrelevant. Even if I don't remember to uncheck it, the global settings "override that oversight."

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

It seems that some people stop reading comments left at a hub after the hub author has responded to whatever comment they've left. This is only a guess because I've read some people's comments (other than the author's responses) and they've brought up something in addition to what was said in the...

Do you always follow the hubs that you comment on?When you comment on a hub, you automatically start receiving emails every time someone else comments on that hub. If its a popular hub, you might get 20 emails a day alerting you that additional comments were added...Is it considered rude to check...

Has anyone noticed this problem? I was looking at people that follow me and noticed that many of them are showing that I don't follow them when I know that I always have. Has anyone noticed this problem too?

How quickly do you "unfollow" a hub after reading it?I always leave a comment and feedback after reading hubs. I find that I like to follow a hub until the hub author comments on my comment. Some authors don't leave comments, but that's alright. I read hubs for enjoyment, so the comments...

Why do people write personal fan mail notes, but yet haven't commented on an article?Am I the only one who sits in utter amazement at people who send personal fan mail notes telling you how wonderful, inspiring, creative and informative your writing is, only to find out they have NEVER even written...
