The Hidden Art of Following
Last Update: May 25, 2014
This is more an observation than a question.
Perhaps someone can clear up the mystery in the art of "following". Everywhere I go in WA these little green rectangles with rounded corners saying “Follow me” keep following me around. They are sitting there under a row of profile pictures on my Profile page.
Then they are there in amongst all the discussion pages next to anyone I haven’t followed yet. And again in other places but of course never under people in my group.
And then of course I find them on people’s profiles but this time they are almost 3 times the size. Aha! That should be a clue.
So which ones out of all of them should be pressed?
Maybe there’s a 'Follow Me' protocol somewhere, a book of rules, hidden away which tells you which ones to use and those you don’t use. How many at a time and when?
You see about a month ago I got so curious I tried it out. I clicked on all the “Follow Me” buttons under the profile pictures in my profile and I wrote down the profile names.
A month went by but not one of those people followed me back.
So I came to the conclusion that the small green rectangles are only a notification or an invitation that these people would like to be followed and some homework needs to done. One should go to their profiles first to check them out. If what you read and see is of interest then it would be good to follow them.
Now I don’t know if that is true……….do you?
What I do know (for all the newbies) is that when you have replied to a follow or someone has replied to your comment back, is that it is very beneficial for you to click on the Like button which helps them and you!
