Do you have more PSers following you or ignoring you?

No idea and I do not care.

When this feature was first offered on PS someone started following me with whom I do not have a good relationship so I find the whole thing a bit creepy. Other than that I have no idea who is following me.

I do not have anyone officially on ignore but I do ignore a few posters and skip over everything they write. I have no desire for drama nor do I need to read what certain posters write just because they write with the purpose to bait and inflame.

And no @Dancing Fire I am not talking about you. I think you are a decent guy despite the fact we do not share political views.

I'm pretty technologically challenged. At one point, I found the follow/unfollow feature. I'm embarrassed to admit I wasn't quite sure what the feature was for. I followed a few people to test it out. When I saw it was for notifications the person made, I unfollowed them. It felt a little stalkerish to me. I didn't know I could find out who is following/unfollowing me. It doesn't bother me either way.

Doubt anyone is following me. I don't generally say anything interesting enough. As for ignore. No clue but if anyone does it's absolutely their right to ignore whomever they want.

I brought this ‘follower’ topic up recently. You can’t see who follows you unless you notice/receive the notification at the time of the follow.
I recently acquired a follower. Admittedly, I was unnerved by that especially since the user was new and not someone I ‘know.’
Personally, I am a little uneasy about that feature and wish it was removed. I even reached out to psadmin about it. I tested this feature with a PS friend. A follower gets notified when you post on PS, either by email or alert. Feels stalker-ish to me too!

I, too, do not care one way or another.

I don't know if I ever had a follower here. I have them on Duolingo, the site where one learns languages. Their presence is kept very obvious there. Often the follower is someone who knows a lot of languages or who has sudied one of the languages you study intensely. That feels complimentary (at least to me). Although I origially only followed family members, I started to follow some of the people who studied languages I did and followed me. However, there are creepy people who study almost nothing and just want to attach themselves to you, too. It is a worldwide site. Those one has to ignore. Who knows what agendas they have?

I wouldn’t blame anyone for ignoring me as I am a chatterbox and it can be tiresome. Though, I’m trying to be more balanced lately.

I‘ve followed several PSers but maybe I should unfollow? I never meant it to be creepy - I just like their taste in OECs.

I don't think I even know how to check who's following me!

I'm sure I post so much drivel that anyone doing so soon unfollows me quite quickly ;-) :lol:

I follow a few PSers.
We have similar interests in jewelry and I don't want to miss photos of their new acquisitions.
It's not about stalking them.

After my $800,000.00 of plastic surgery, I assume all the ladies can't help but follow me, Barbie's Kenny Doll.

If that came out of my pool I'd scream in horror and hit it with the pool skimmer.

I'm sure no one is following me, I'm not that interesting. Nor do I follow anyone, I just check the new threads.
