The Follow Me, I'll Follow You...

Posted on the 12 February 2018 by Skip1957 @skip1957
I've been online for a long time, on some sites longer than others. Most of those sites didn't have a "Follow" button. Instead, they had a Friend Button. So if someone requested to be your friend, chances were good, you would. 

Now we have sites with both, Friends, and the Follow button. I'd like to know how many times I see someone say, I'm looking for 2000 or however many, followers before tomorrow, if you follow me, I'll follow back. 

I have never found this a good idea, or practice. I have always made it a point to follow those who I think deserve to be followed. The type of people I follow, are mainly people who make me grin, smile or laugh. Not that I necessarily follow them either. If I find someone who I may think I want to follow, I visit their profile and check out some of the things they have posted. 

After I've done this, that is when I make my decision whether I will follow them or not. Why would anyone follow someone else if they don't enjoy anything they may write or post? Why have your feed filled with things you have no interest in? It just doesn't make sense. 

I have followed some people who I like and that usually includes some comedians, some actors. I have a couple who have followed me back, which surprised me, but it's true! I love comedy, so I follow many comedians who I really enjoy their work. 

I even follow a few people who just make me laugh, one of which, is a lawyer. She missed her calling, she should have been a comedian! I DO NOT follow any politicians, I have enough bullshit in my real life, I don't need to pile any more on top of that online. 

Twitter makes suggestion on who to follow, they obviously don't know me very good, because the people they suggest... pathetic!
Speaking of followers, I think at the present time, I have two followers here on Blogster... I can't believe my popularity here! 😉  Anyway, the follow me I'll follow you back, is not for me!  BB84CBJNBGNM
