I'm literally following like 5 people. I used to follow back once a person followed me, but I realized it was dumb when I realized what kind of people they were. I immediately unfollow (or don't follow at all) if they follow too many girls, if all they answer is sexual stuff, if they're too sexual in general, if they're weird/annoying/creepy/perverted etc. So, yea, when a person starts to follow me I thoroughly stalk their profile to make sure what kind of person they are and if I like their thought process. Rarely do I follow people first though they have to be like really really cool lol.
I don't follow back. I don't see a reason. This is not a Facebook where you have to "accept" the request and add them in order to become friends. I have a lot of G@G friends I'm not even following. The significance of following someone here is to have their opinions on top to easily read them, get their questions in "recommended questions' page/panel and myTakes in "recommended myTakes" page/panel. And their activity in news feed. If I started to follow just anyone, my feed would get spammed.
I follow the people who :- ☻Post witty, humorous, helpful, perspicacious, creative or in-depth opinions. ☻Ask clever, tricky, genuine questions and don't ask just for validation. ☻Write eloquent, original, new, beautiful and to-the-point myTakes. ☻Some people who think like me or are informative & some acquaintances. ☻People who are suffering from cancer so that I'd check it if they're online so, I'd try to make their life happier.
Things I don't do :- ☻Following someone just because she's a girl ☻Following someone just because she's aesthetically attractive ☻Following someone just because he/she's popular here ☻Following someone just because he/she followed me first. ☻Following someone just because he/she's nice and is my friend.
I follow people back if we've interacted in a positive way. I've never followed anyone first so I dont even follow the cool ones that I get along with the best such as Errhh, JustbanAnnaz and TonyRyan.
If you ever came across some of my interactions with them, you wouldn't think that was the case :)
I'm kinda new on this ; I like to support those who support me , although I will NOT just go to profiles that are popular. That's not the way I am in real person or this place either. Thank you for letting me know this. I back someone who talks right and that I feel share the same interest , thanks again. !!!
I followed Applefan1 because he is very nice and we always had conversations via messages but sadly he deactivated. I follow people who have similar views to mine, and I also follow people who follow me.
I am following you and one other person only. Well I follow girls that are beautiful and wise at the same time 8) Although, one of them sucks at replying my message, but I got my reply already by myself (cough)
Sometimes if follow back people who follow me. But it depends if I talk to them or not. I also look at their profiles, so I learn more about them. No, I don't care if they are popular or not. As long as we can have a good conversation, I follow them.
I follow like less than 10 people. I being my best friend, one being my boyfriend but he never goes on, and then a couple of randoms that I don't remember or pay attention to. I don't get the point of following people on here.
