    Okay, so I am not following a person and they are sharing a bunch of answers.  Somehow, these stories are showing up on my feed.  The answers are not related to any topics I am following.  Why could this be?

    Did you accidentally follow a question?

      No.  And there are numerous questions and answers this hubber is sharing.  I am puzzled as to why this is happening...

    Hey Brittany,

    Maybe because you're following the hubber's hub which they shared. Or you could be following a specific topic?

      I am still puzzled.  I have no idea why I am getting the things he is sharing in my feed, but I guess he stopped 'cause they aren't there anymore.

    Email the HP team and ask them why. The closest I have experienced to what you describe is when I get notifications from HP that a hubber has asked a question, started a forum topic etc, but these are always related to Hubbers who I have previously followed, not those I have no connection with!

    Thank you, everyone, for trying to help explain this crazy phenomenon.  I won't bother the HP team with this one as it isn't a big deal, but I just thought I would see if anyone else had a similar experience.  It's just so strange.
