    If someone looks interesting to me I have just followed them. On this site not down the street and whrn they go home etc!)
    Is that not proper ss etiquette, should I be asking them if they mind if I do follow them?
    Thank you so much

    Iv had a few just invite them selfs so it seems the norm, you can unfollow no problems so far

  3. I don't usually ask to follow but I do send a short message introducing us and mention that I've followed them and hope they don't mind etc. Plus it's a nice way to get talking to them xx

  6. Depends.. if they have pics and info.. then i sometimes follow... no use following blank pages.. if theres banter etc i follow.. i judge if they are a noob then no i dont.
    Do i ask? Sometimes yes sometimes no.

    This has been asked before and the general consensus then was, it was deemed polite to ask if okay to follow and then ask if okay to follow in return.
    Some are happy with people just following, others prefer to be asked if okay first.
    Personally if me on our fun account, I always ask. As admin I may follow anyway - for a number of reasons which I won't explain here.

    I think it's far politer to ask - as it only takes a few seconds "ooh hello, do you mind if we follow" as opposed to bluntly following someone.
    Just my tuppence worth. :) x

    Ahem... I should have said;
    As admin I MAY follow anyway - for a number of reasons which I won't explain here.
    I only follow certain people for certain reasons.. usually three - one we hit it off and are friendly, two so I can show them the ropes and three because I think they're numpties and will track them before I ban their arses. :D

    Ok that explains it better for me now. So publicly tol those I have followed without asking first I am sorry and I'm glad no one complained.
    To my follows of the future... I shall I ask you first.
    Thank you for clarifying the etiquette I really wasn't sure.
    Xxx

  13. Interesting that someone has asked this question, well done @Lola - im not even sure why 'to' follow people :(
    I know there has been some enhancements about notifications recently but before that ...

    I have if Ive spoken to them on here and they seem nice.
    I have if they look fit (what i call my Twitter approach ;) )

    I never asked (rude sod) but didnt really get how it worked so i also apologise if I followed you and you didnt know why - dont worry i probably didnt know either :eek:

    When you follow people and they follow back, this means that when either person does anything you will know, just like twitter or facebook.. Go to your news feed and you will then see what everyone is up too ;);)
