I follow a few people, but only today thought to check "Hey, who follows me?"  A few of them, I decided to "follow back".

Do many of you also follow people, who in turn follow you - or follow people because they follow you?

I think it's only creepy if the following is one-way! 🙂

 

I turned the function off here in the forums and on the website.  I also get a lot of people adding/following me on Flickr.  There, I do add some but if it's just a blogger looking for more followers or someone who only posts sideways pictures, I don't add them.  

In the forums, I'll follow a thread rather than a person.

We can follow people?  People can follow us?  I doubt I have any followers, but if I do, *waves*.

I follow threads I've commented on automatically and sometimes I'll follow a thread because I'm interested in it, but I promptly uncheck allowing other to see that I follow a thread.

If I have followers, do they expect me to follow back?  How would I know?

I'm no preacher, so I'm not seeking any followers.
And I'm not religious so I don't follow any either.

I read the threads that I'm interested in and when I read them, I will see what everybody writes about the subject.
What people write in threads that I don't care about?  To be honest, I couldn't care less.

I don't even know where they would be listed.. I don't really pay much attention to a lot of features in the forums unless they are in the bar above where I am typing a post..

I hardly ever go to my profile.. I think the last time I did was to change my forum avatar and that's pretty old .. hehehehe

The last time someone brought up following, I tried out the following feature and I guess my settings are such that following a person has zero impact for me.  I don't see any notifications about the people I followed so I don't know why I bothered to follow.  I guess it just makes me declare myself as a fan. 

So I am clueless about following.  I'm sure I must be missing something but I don't know what.

Perhaps the people you followed no longer post on the forum. 
*Edit* Or, check your notification settings.

Ironically, I forgot you posted this and got confused just now when I couldn't figure out how to follow you!

It's creepy when it's people you've never talked to or even met follow you. What on earth for? 🤔

I turned mine off because the only people following me were people I have never seen before and I'm pretty sure one of them was doing it to keep tabs on me. Yeah, no. I've been stalked in RL; you're not doing it to me here that easily.
