    I have never initiated a follow.
    Whenever somebody followed by I followed back as soon as I saw it
    I see.

    Thinking too much into it brah it's just to follow their posts.
    I didn't know following someone got notifications whenever they posted.

    (Original post by MrsSheldonCooper)
    I feel flattered you mentioned me dude.
    You are welcome. So you got a notification when I posted?

    (Original post by TheOtherSide.)
    To some, it's another thing to prize over, like reps.

    The actual function of follows is that you can see the latest posts of people you are following.
    I see.

    (Original post by Student403)
    I do it to encourage people whose posts I enjoy to post more
    It's what started me off so why not do the same to others?
    I see.

    I'll follow someone first if I think they're interesting. I usually try to follow people back too, though.

    Usually when someone follows me I follow back
    I can't remember the last time I followed someone out of just liking their posts

    I don't follow anyone since I don't see why it's necessary, especially on a site like this.

    Three reasons for me:

    - I like their posts.
    - I like the subjects they comment on.
    - I like them and want to do more than rep.

    It provides an easier way to interact with people I suppose, if someone is on a thread I can just have a quick look.

    I get updates at the bottom of the My TSR page and get to see which threads they've posted on. I follow people that like talking about a range of different topics, which I myself could possibly engage in.

    I don't follow that many people to begin with, partly because scrolling takes longer lol

    For my first few months on TSR I was a bit silly by following whoever followed me. I've unfollowed those with pathetic posts.
