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.
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
Ah, @Harpesian, we Meet again. Many times, for as of right now I have 515 Followers, Someone Might Follow me for my Comments and so forth. I May Follow them Back because they Follow me First, or sometimes I just "Follow" because I may find Someone a bit different from Some of the Rest of the Best. Good luck and Great question. xx
