Why, do you think, are notifications sent for "following" but not for "un-following"?
All the social networks, Facebook, Twitter etc. and even HubPages for that matter, will notify you if someone follows you. You might or might not follow back according to the content. And the follower might unfollow you because you didn't follow them in turn, or because s/he had a change of mind. But no notification is sent for that. Why do you think is that? And do you think thats okay, or should notifications be sent?
I think the reason is that some people might become like stalkers and try to get the people who unfollowed to come back. I don't think notifications should be sent just for that reason.
I think that people are pretty sensitive when it comes down to it and if they received a constant list of people that no longer like them, this could lead to a lot of issues. I know some people wish they could send a notification like this to some that they stop following, but again, this could only cause problems.
I know it is something that most people are aware of, but it rarely gets discussed.
Interesting question Anusha15!
I am fine for no notices for unfollowing. Sometimes I choose to "unfollow" for personal reasons and I prefer to be able to bow out graciously. Notices for unfollowing could lead to potential conflict. Unfollowing does not necessarily mean someting "bad" but it could be easily misconstrued as that.

First, I want to make it perfectly clear that the HubPages follow program is great and I have absolutely no qualms or criticism about who follows who. What bothers me a lot is the fact that every time someone follows someone, there is notification that "XXX is now following...

Why do I only get notifications for some of the questions I am following?I often don't notice comments because there is no notification, but for some of the questions I follow I always get a notification. Why does that happen?

There should be a tab for sent messages or sent fan mail. I cannot find this anywhere on the site. Thanks!
