If I follow someone is it complimentary for them to follow me back?
I think this is a basic question. I know we are busy people but as people want to connect is it okay to beg to be followed or is it just something that happens with a hope and prayer someone will follow what one writes.
I see people begging to be followed else where as it were the means to the end. So do you follow someone that follows you?
No, view their hubs, if they write well written hubs that are on subjects that you find interesting, follow them or not, as you wish. There would be little point in following a hubber who writes about heavy metal rock and you're into Beethoven. Or, as in my case, I have a couple of hubbers following me who write poetry, which is of no interest to me so I don't follow them, I can't leave any sensible comments on their hubs.
Some hubbers just go through the alphabet and follow everyone on the list for that letter as if they need to follow everyone, just ignore it.

On Hubpages, if someone follows you, do you have to follow them back as courtesy?I have noticed a lot of people that have followed me that don't leave any comments. I wonder if I should follow them back as courtesy or not? The ones that do leave comments when they follow me are the ones...

When I first started out with hubpages I followed hundreds of people, because I wanted them to follow me back, because I though that's how you get readers to come to your hub. I recently found out that following a lot of people reduces your hubscore, plus I cancelled my updates on the hubbers I...
