    Who do you Follow and why do you?

    I mainly follow people I chat with or that I enjoy their posts. i do cull out my lists as not everyone I follow might be so interested in Chatting with me. ( Unbelievable, Right?) I also prefer to keep my pics privateer for friends.

    I've noticed some have hundreds of Followers? So, I was curious as to how others view following.

    If someone follows me, I usually follow them, or if I want to open my profile and pic gallery to them.

    I keep my profile, pic and post for those I follow, it's a way to control who gets to see my content, to keep out those who are trying to make my life here hard, or are activity stalking me.
    Just ask or follow me, and in most cases I will follow you back.

    I normally follow people i have sent a PM to. And if someone follows me. i will do likewise. I've just noticed that I have more followers than I follow :) And some I follow are no longer here. so I should really go and sort it out :)

    For the guys following the ladies, isn't it sort of a euphemism for "I wanna bang you silly!"
    (...sits back and waits for the cascade of "Unfollow's" to come):D

    Likewise ;)
    I'm just relieved that you and a couple of others gave this response a Like. Thought I might get banned.

    But to answer the OP on the level, I look at Follow as a way of saying you enjoy the content someone is putting up, whether it's photos or forum posts. It can also be just a simple courtesy that you extend after someone follows you.

    I was following some of the ladies on here, but it seems when I followed them home and peered in their windows, it gave them some cause for concern...I'm not sure why...o_O

    When it was required that their permission was needed to "friend" someone then I had lots of them but then when it changed to "follow" without the requirement for permission then I ceased and in fact cleared my entire list.
    "Following" to me sounds creepy especially towards women so I don't do it although still a lot of folks seem follow me for some unfathomable reasons and I don't really mind.
    I do follow many members posts and like many characters on SF and those soon realise that fact but I don't feel the need to advertise it to all and sundry.
