Somebody explain! Are you able to follow someone who has a private profile?

I thought you're not able to follow people who have a private profile, why do I keep getting followers? Isn't my profile private? So confused.

    Following Private Profiles?

    Yes. You can now send follow requests to private profiles!

    Private profile owner will accept or ignore follow requests.

    Private Profiles - Are you ready to increase your Follower count?

  • Yes, that's a new feature implemented today. However, the person can either accept or decline the follow. So, if you have a private profile and someone clicks the "follow" button on your profile, you will be notified and then you will have the option to "accept" or "decline" the follow. So if you don't want those specific people to follow you, you can decline it.

  • I thought that you have to accept them.

    Why do you keep getting followers? Either you're accepting and letting them follow you or Gag is broken lol
