What makes you follow people on GaG?

I honestly don't really know what the follow feature does on this site. I had an account in the past and it seemed as though everyone was constantly itching to unfollow you.

Two questions then:
Why do you follow people on GaG?
Why do you unfollow people on GaG?

Please explain, GaG community. NOTE - Poll refers to the question title only.

  • Why do I follow people on GaG?

    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 find that helpful.

    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.

  • It's a mixture of the options you listed. It could be:
    - They post helpful options.
    - They are funny.
    - We seem to have similar tastes.
    - Sometimes, I'll follow back those that have followed me.
