Do not compare twitter / facebook with follower system of Envato.
Envato’s follower system has quite commercial view, its purpose (and if I’m not wrong its the only purpose ) is to follow the authors whose work you like / or want to buy item from them in future and need to keep an eye on their recent releases. Just think why they have not kept some settings for follow functionality. In clear words, most of the followers follow just because they want you to visit their profile (and why? you know it ) or want to give some ‘return gift’ if you follow them.
I don’t compare any follower system.. You miss it something of all of my meaning.
So, the meaning is, the follow system of all social media or not, created for people, when visit profiles to follow the author or not.. for any reason..
Nothing more nothing less..
This is the meaning of folllow system.. So, i agree with you.
@ To People with strange knowlegde
Guys guys, open your mind!
Sales with follow with followers with badges with rating with whatever... IS.. A …. DIFFERENT OPTIONNNNNNNNN
Wake up some here in community…
There is no rule: If You have >1000 sales you must to have >=1000 followers… There is no rule: If You have 5stars you are awesome author… There is no rule: If You have a power elite author badge you are the god here….....
Get relax guys… and open your mind!!!
P.S.: Some people have facebook or twitter or other social media with “friends”...
So, all follow/followers are friends??? Its different from envato follow/followers uh? This doesn’t make sense?
What about likes in social media? Come on guys.. get relax!
