    If people don't follow you do you follow them?

    Nobody would ever follow anybody if they all waited for a follow...right?

    Ok, let me rephrase that if you follow someone and it's clear they are on frequently and they don't follow back do you keep following?

    I have my profile and pics set to those I follow only. I will remove guys who don't follow me.

    I don't know that there is a general etiquette rule of thumb, but personally I follow people who don't follow back. Doesn't bother me.

    I also have my albums restricted to those I follow. I only follow people I chat with.

    I try and remember to hit the follow button when people follow me but quite honestly, if I don't think your photos are attractive, and if you bore me or are a complete and utter weirdo then yeh I ain't following you....I'm probably ignoring you :D

    I don't follow, because I think if you do, you get lots of updates on people posting gifs and other Internet images, as well as posting on the game threads and messages to say they liked some picture. My time here would be spent checking on things that don't interest me.

    I find it easier to "follow" people by just reading the threads without images. I'm interested in discussions, not gifs, games and pictures.

    I usually follow if I enjoy that persons thoughts/posts.

    I just kinda take things for fun with a grain of salt on forums and don't really believe most of what is posted by people. So muck fake-ness out there :)

    As for me, though, I often follow back if someone thinks enough of me to follow my stuff (not that my content is worthy of following & I haven't uploaded the obligatory cock pics).

    Am I making sense?

    I personally have never put much thought into it. If I decide to follow someone. I don't think they should feel obligated to follow me. Who follows who is not really a concern of mine on here.

    I feel about the same way you do.

    Plus, when I joined there was no following. There were friend requests, and it was nice because it helped me get to know people. When the following thing started I didn't initially get into the habit of hitting the follow button, but now I do a little bit.

    When I do it has to do with liking a member's taste in music, or they have interesting things to say, or they are very nice or I find them to be unusual (and sometimes even difficult). I was friends with a very unusual and sometimes controversial member back when, and when he left I was very sad. I still miss him. Sometimes when you take time to try to understand those that are difficult to understand or who you might be tempted to cast aside, it makes for the best kind of friendship.

    I never follow because of pics (I did at the beginning). I spend little time on pics because I have plenty of stimulation at home.

    I do not follow all that follow me and I'm sure I follow a few that don't follow me. It's not something I give much thought to to be honest, I don't look at followers or who has what. I don't think you can message me unless I follow you and I don't have any photos up to see either way.
