GaGers! What's your reason for following people on here? Like what's the point?


Just curious as to why you do it.

  • I don't, ahaha.
    Most people do it because they find the person interesting..

    I don't follow anyone because I'd have to follow everyone on here..
    People are too chill. xD
    Then, if I follow one person, the same will apply to everyone else.
    Once I start doing something I can't stop.
    So, I'd rather not start to begin with :P

  • I follow the people I am interested in reading their activities. Because I am following that specific person, I can easily get notifications of his/her activities in my news feed so that I could check it.

    I follow the people who:
    ●Give helpful/sarcastic/insightful opinions
    ●Ask creative/mind bending/light questions
    ●Write proficient myTakes
    ●Extremely friendly yet professional
    ●Suffering from cancer

    If a person meets any of the above criteria, he/she would get my following.

    • Is there anyone here suffering from cancer?

    • Show All
    • Can I tell you in PM about him because it'd not be a good idea to post his details here?

  • Umm because I'm becoming/I am like a walking THREAD/question bump LOL

    I like their opinions and it's easier to TAG them in a post ^^

  • I just follow people who follow me, in continued annoyance they killed how 'friend' used to work, which i preferred. My profile lets anyone message me, but I think following back probably does let them know they can if they were unsure.

    • @Bandit74 as of this second mine appears to be masters, then gurus, then by time posted.

    • Well you're on the top for me since I follow you AND you're a master.

      However I follow watermelonoma and he's second right after you and he's not a master or guru. He's above klatu and ihav2fart.

  • I GAG, therefore I follow.
    No, seriously, I'm not really sure what the point is either. But I do notice that the awesome GAGers that I follow show up in the My Feed column over on the right, so I guess it has something to do with that.

  • I don't follow people on here for popularity reasons.

    I follow people that are on here for the right reason ie., those who actually provide some knowledge, that I can learn from.

    I like reading what the more mature crowd has to say, and I like to get some fresh perspectives on issues from the younger crowd. So I have a little mash of people (women and men) that I find provide good feedback and present good questions.

  • it aids you to get closer to the people you choose by showing their activities on your feed so you can engage in a discussion with them.

    people add me and i add them back. i use to add people but if they dont add back in 2 days or so, i unfollow them.

    i m only down for reciprocating relatinshhips. ain't feeding nobodys ego

  • I follow when I find something the person said interesting.
    Since it makes the person activity show more in your feed is a easy way to check more stuff from the person.

  • when i think someone is HOT, like when i followed you and thought you were :)
    another reason is being helpful to me and answering my questions. One last reason is when someone followed me first.
    hope that helps

  • I follow whoever I find interesting, after seeing a couple of interesting questions/opinions I do so. Maybe because is easier to find their posts later. Also, I usually (underline) follow back whoever follows me just cause I'm good guy greg type XD

  • If I agree with a lot of their opinions I'll follow them to see more of it. There's so many crazy people on here with backwards opinions so finding people who aren't like that at all is nice.
    If they're super nice I'll follow them to see more niceness! It makes me happier than the hate on here

    • I feel special now :)
      This is the first time I've seen your face :D
      .. why you hide pretty face?

    • @mr90skid you should! I Like your posts.
      Aww thanks. I was worried I would be spotted by someone I know on here but I figured the chances are slim

  • Because I like their opinions and following them makes it easier for me to be a creep and read / comment on all their opinions they post.
