I follow the other person in return. I sometimes send a thank you, but not always. I also sometimes get a thank you, but not always from someone I follow. I consider it thanks enough if they follow me back.

I will email and make a comment to say thank you. There have been times I got busy and forgot and have felt bad about not getting around to it. I am okay if I don't get a thank you from someone I follow, I know they appreciate it. We are all busy and for me this site is about business first and I am not keeping score.

I like to send a thank you email to them. I try to get to everyone but I don't always succeed. When I first started on AR, we called them "subscribers" and we would send an annual Christmas letter to each one thanking them for being one of our subscribers. I could only do that until we got to about 1000 subscribers. After that it was no longer manageable. So we do try to reach out with a thank you email.

I 'Follow' them, and send them a short 'Contact Me' message, after I have read their Profile Annelle Tubb.  Now that being said, I may not have done that when I first started on AR, so for that short period, I hope that others have not thought of me as rude, though I always 'Followed' them in return.  Then there were some that had no 'Contact Me' message in their Profile, so I only 'Followed' them in return . . .

I typically do not send thank you's, nor do I expect them in return when I follow someone. I think it's kind of understood that it's appreciated and there are enough emails flying around. Having said that, I agree, it's always nice to see a thank you note.

I don't really pay close enough attention to who follows me really.  While I appreciate it a lot, I don't necessarily reciprocate.  If somebody is offended by that then...  okay...  I guess.  It's nothing personal, I've just got a business to run.  AR to me is about a balance between gaining business for us and a small part of it being social.
