I follow people that I find interesting or that I had an interesting interaction with. When I follow someone, their questions show up in my notifications so I can easily check to see if something is of interest to me. I am not sure if replies show up but I know for sure questions do appear in my notifications.
I am still figuring out this site and I only periodically check it out so it helps if when I log in, I have notifications of topics from people that I know I have found interesting in the past.
Why do I unfollow people on GaG?
I don't unfollow people. I don't report people. It just is not my thing. I am an unoffendable person. It is impossible to offend me since I believe offense is never given but taken. And since I don't take offense, it is impossible for me to be offended.
However, I do get annoyed. At the point I get overly annoyed, I ignore. People have the right to be annoying. No harm there. I just choose to ignore them.
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.
"Why do you unfollow people on GaG?" ☻Those who start to bitch about everything ☻Those who start to post one liner answers and hunt xper
I mostly follow people that write a lot of opinions I agree with and people that follow me and seem cool after having interacted with them a little. I unfollow people if someone I thought was cool initially turns out to be a total douche lol, no loss.
If they follow me, I follow back. I'm not stuck up XD so, I don't see why I wouldn't. I won't follow back if 1) they only have sex answers. (sorry, but I know what that person is after!) 2) the username is super sexual
If I ask to follow someone it's because they're either super funny or really interesting. I usually have 0 interest of striking up a conversation, I just want to be able to be in their 'circle' of questions/etc.
I follow these people - Those who are my friends Those who write useful stuff Those who write funny stuff Most importantly, Those who follow me. I usually follow them back. I haven't unfollwed anyone so far.
I don't follow people. If people follow me, I follow them back if we've interacted before and had good conversations. There are plenty of people on the site that I talk to all the time that I don't follow.
