    What does it mean when someone "follows" you.

    Also, how do you remove followers from your followers list?

    Is there a way to just block all following?

    it means, they watching your back

    :)

    I figure it means they following you so they can be aware of your posts
    perhaps you said something that shed light on their darkness

    imo….

    not sure how it works either.

    I always thoght if your # followers reached a certain number then you entered godmode.. so.. some special powers.. and or weapons.

    but that could be inaccurate.

    There is a "Follow" link on your profile, and when members use that link to follow your profile, it means the following will happen:
    1. Your profile will appear in their Following list on their profile.
    2. Their profile will appear in your Followers list on your profile.
    3. Your activity (e.g., posts and Likes) will show up in their News feed (only members they follow), which is a personalized version of the general Activity feed (all members).

    Currently, there isn't an option to block members from following you.

    You can only remove members from your Following list.

    We hope that helps.

    There is a limit on the number of members you can follow at one time (currently, ~2000), but there isn't a limit on the number of members that can follow you (as long as they haven't reached their own Following limit).

    Once that limit is reached, you have to unfollow someone before you can follow anyone new.

    I just think it's just kinda creepy, that's all. lol

    I'm not into the whole social media thing. I don't have an FB or other SM accounts.
    I like forums, but I draw the line at people "following" me lol
    That's just too weird and sheepish in my world. lol
