Nowhere do I follow all my followers. I only follow those I respect enough to spend time reading their Blogs or Social Media Posts. A lot of my followers barely post or only post market reports (boring) and no value to me. I appreciate all 577 AR followers I have-to date, but I only follow 261 people on AR and not necessarily all 261 are my followers either.

No I do not Peter Mohylsky, though I do appreciate all of my Followers.  If I do not follow someone it's basically because I have read their Profile and they are either not a realtor, have no Profile and no Blogs, and I basically know nothing about them, because they have told me nothing!  Some folks are very accomplished and interesting, while others have not even taken a few minutes to write anything . . .

On here, yes I do.

On IG & Twitter I followback those who seem legit. What I noticed is that many follow you just to unfollow you later, ie. churn followers to get more followers. That's a bad practice & I'll simply unfollow those people with the Unfollow tool!

It doesn't take more than a minute to do this stuff & following back is good for building larger networks on social media. Celebrities are the only people that a follow back is not expected from.

No.  I used to because I thought it was a courtesy to do so.  Now I've since changed my view on that and I only follow those who produce content I want to read or whom I need to tag here.  I got rid of over 700 people I followed a few months ago.

I'm trying to get caught up on this. If a person has done the courtesy of following me, I feel it would make sense to return the courtesy and get to know them. Currently 85% of people who follow me, I have reciprocated and followed them. I'm going slowly at this because I'm seeing, among other things, if they are still actively posting.
