I rarely check to see how many followers I have or who they are, but I've observed that some users seem keenly aware of when someone un-follows them and how many followers they have. Do you keep track of your followers?

I check the total from time to time but pay no attention to who may have left. Only know who came if happen to see it in Notifications. Find it amusing how the numbers move, though. 1 up, 2 down, 1 up, 1 up, 1 up. Odd dance that generally moves up...

Know I lose ppl becuz they disagree w/my values &/or principles or find me boring, whatever. Prefer they unfollow. Pick up new people because they see things more as I do. Overall numbers go up so just can't find energy to be concerned either way.

No, but when I notice absence of an individual's comments, over time.
Happened once.

Only because I'm trying to get more followers. Btw me and okie have a lot of similar views, and I'm trying to get followers, so feel free to follow me, I'll gladly follow back.

Nope. And more importantly, I don't go on comment threads and say "Guys, I'm awesome and thoughtful and totally amazing. You should follow me." Those people are annoying and I never follow them.

No. Not everyone is going to like my questions, so I would hope that if someone didn't, they just unfollowed me. :)

For some reason whenever I post a comment I check my followers.

I'm sure if I had l had less followers and was able to tell if someone came or went it might be fun but there's no way I've ever tried to know who does and doesn't follow me. The exception being a smell group of about 6 users.

Good morning to you too Early. Glad to hear that. I've given up trying to answer all polls. I always have around 200-300 unanswered polls

Just because I have so few. I got a bunch of followers one day and it took me a week to figure out I've been featured with my seven polls over a year.

Why do people keep track of that? Seems awful petty to me.

There's a rule in business: if nobody's complaining, you're not charging enough. So if nobody's unfollowing you, you're not fighting hard enough for your ideals and ruffling a few feathers.

There was a poll one day and I noticed I was at 399 so I made a comment about it. Sometimes I look at how many I have just before I ask a controversial poll. I will loose a couple and can sometimes guess who it is.

I notice when I post a poll but I don't have the patience to see who unfollowed me. They'll just be missing out on my amazing questions, their loss.

I see the numbers when I post a poll. Otherwise, not really.

Okie, in this regard, I am much like you. Weeks can go by, between my visits to "PEOPLE" on SoH' Homescreen. I'm so honored that folks would consider following me. It's also a great honor, that the people I follow, don't mind me hangin' around! :D

I used to. But then lost interest in who follows me. Plus, I notice only about 40% respond

When I was at OCS a drill instructor once told me that the only reason a young Marine would follow me is out of idle curiosity. That stung. I expect the same is true here though.

No. You have valid reasoning and information in your posts. That's why I follow you. Devil Dog!!!

Truthfully, if someone "unfollows" me, I'm unmoved. You either understand my humor or you don't.

I don't pay attention to how many users I have nor if they leave or stay. I'm truly amazed I have so many.

I see my followers as virtual "friends"...people who have either engaged with me in conversation or have seen my comments and have chosen to make me part of their SoH experience. If I have a new follower, I generally want to follow back. It seems...

polite... to me. If someone unfollows, I like to see who it was. I have occasionally unfollowed users who I chose to follow and they either didn't follow me back, or they rarely seem to post polls or engage in conversations.

I notice only when someone unfollows me because I tell them to or they tell me they are. I do keep an eye on the number of followers I have, to some degree.

The only time I'm aware someone unfollows me is when I piss them off and they tell me they're unfollowing. I'm like, see ya'!
