I have been here her for long time. Have had lot of xpers. II keep asking questions and answer everyday. not anonymously , I follow people. All I get is creepy dirty messages. Its not a scream to follow me which is why i asked anon lol I'm just wondering
I'll give you a few tips. Don't post anonymously, even if your post will offend one side. You're still going to have to put up with the backlash if you post anonymously. But if you post openly so everyone knows who you are, you will gain allies who think the same way you do. Those people will be more likely to follow you. It's also a good idea to use memes and be humorous sometimes. Don't offer politically correct gender neutral advice all the time, everyone has already heard that garbage and it doesn't work. If you post like a yuppie people will know you're full of shit and won't take you seriously. I don't try to please everyone, be popular, or get followers, but I do get quite a bit of messages on here every day and have a few followers. The important thing is to be yourself and find what it is you have to offer that nobody else does.
I had a follower at one point, but I guess I offended them or something :(
I guess you gotta just say things that people really like, also from what I understand, at one point the site had a friend system, so all your old friends turned into followers / following, this is probably why some people have so many.
If it makes you feel any better, I don't have followers either. Having followers on GAG is not some prized accomplishment, hon. In fact, the more followers you have here, the less likely you are to be away from a screen enjoying the amazing wanders life has to offer. Perk up! If it's a major goal to have followers here, then you honestly might want to reconsider your priorities because there are a lot more noteworthy goals to accomplish than that.
Bcoz you are anonymous lol... inbox me and I follow u!
The more active you are, the more people will recognize you and want to follow you or interact with you. The more questions you ask, the more opinions you share, the more people you follow, etc... it'll all make yourself more known on the site (if you're not posting anonymously) and people will catch on :-)
