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.
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.
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.
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
Moat times it's because they've followed me. But other times it's because I've seen them on several questions and I've found their answers to be interesting. I enjoy following the people I follow. I followed you and look what happened! 😊
