    Can you unfriend someone?

    What is the etiquette for unfriending someone that we chose to befriend at one point and later realized that they weren’t really fitting into the kind of Hub personality you thought they would?  Particularly if you’re a newbie and begin following someone based on an interesting Hub, only to realize that was all you shared in common; interest in one Hub? I don’t mean to be offensive but we are all clearly unique personalities on HubPages and that is what makes it great. I don't want to insult anyone. Is there a way to un-follow without offending someone or are you stuck with them? Please help.

    Unfriend anyone as you please. If they aren't your friends in your personal life there are no real repercussions. People do it on HubPages for various reasons. It has been done to me and I have done it to others. No worries. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes.

      Life and Luxury,
      Thank you. It is not a matter of being uninterested in anyone per se, but right now I would like to really focus on the Hubbers that I have feel have followed a road similar to the one I am just getting on.

    You can unfollow someone just as easily as you followed them.  Just go to their profile and click unfollow.  In the world of cyberspace I don't consider fellow hubbers friends.  They are only acquaintences and how is it rude to unfollow someone you don't know.  Just sayin.  My goal is not for other hubbers to follow me but to have my outside audience read my hubs.  That is where I make money not with other hubbers.

      Author Cheryl,
      I'm happy to see you feel that way. I don't want someone to wonder why I lost interest or what would've made me change my mind. I just don't want it to be a personal thing.
