Are you less likely to follow someone whose profile is "private"?

I generally won't follow them, and I'll frequently boot them off my follower list.

Yes. If I were a journalist I wouldn't interview a street protester who is wearing a mask either.

I do not trust those who take extra steps to purposely hide themselves in anonymity.
Masked protesters cannot be trusted to give truthful accounts, so I wouldn't give them a stage?
Its a matter of trust & not being someone's useful idiot.

I do follow a lot of people with private profiles. When someone follows I almost always follow back. 99%.

I like discloser if you are going to comment or follow.

Absolutely yes!

I always check out a user's polls, before following. I can't do that with a private profile.

Ebola is that you in your profile? If so you look much better now.

I agree. If you choose to be involved in social media, be social.

I don't follow private profiles. I have no way to know what their polls are like. If they go private after the fact, so bit it.

Good question Ebola I don't generally unless they follow me first. Also sometimes I do it when they are new. My profile was private too until early on Susanr advised me it was not the best approach. So blame it on Susanr. Lol.

I did not picture you like that. You really do look like a doctor.

That's the young and the older me. Personally I don't see much difference. Do you?

If I'm thinking about following them, I ask them to take their profile off private first.

I don't follow anyone who has a private profile.

So yes.

Interesting, despite the comments 70% of voters so far say they are less likely to follow.

But. Yes the but arises. But do the 70% matter as much as these 4 auspicious and capricious SOH'rs. I think not. I shall follow their lead.

AbandonedAccnt Not here.

Not unless i've seen them post many comments and can adjudge their "usership" that way.

MrLucchese If curious, ask.
03/13/15 3:17 pm

Not any bit less likely.

03/13/15 3:05 pm

I still follow.

It's not a deal breaker but I have to say I am less likely to follow them.
