Do you expect people to follow you back if you follow them?

Especially if you have had little to no conversation with them.
No. I follow people if I like them and their posts. If they follow me back, great, but it’s not a personal necessity for me.

Not particulary. I follow people that make me smile as I like to see their posts more often.
Hell yeah. & if they don't I unfollow them

I ain't tryna be anyone's follower I'm tryna be their friend 😂
Not at all. They should only follow me if they like my content, not because I like theirs.

I don't follow back a lot of peeps but I can understand that
following historically has meant that someone will no longer interact with me. and it doesn't seem to be useful any longer for narrowing the feed or bringing in the sorts of things or posts i want to see so i don't follow anyone and i don't let anyone follow me.

i prefer to be friends instead of just following someone.
It makes everything nice and equal.

no, that is their choice
After conversation if they want to then fine.

Given the state of this site, if you want post on your feed your going to have to follow others as well as they follow you.

Your feed will suffer if you don't. So I don't see any choice now.

Before these changes, I actually rarely followed anyone. And often removed those who followed me.

I actually don't block or mute anyone though. Never have.

No I follow just so i see their posts

not really, if i like their posts I'll follow, I don't really post anything so i don't expect to be followed by many

I don't remember the last time I followed someone? I don't expect anyone to follow me back tho.

It’s giving the green light

@Strictmichael75 if you want to chat with them, send them a message...

I don't expect them to. But if they don't then I stop following them after a while.
