I have just 44 followers and 90 present of them are Audiojungle authors. Its obvious that they follow me just to notice them and check there portfolio. Unfortunately this way I cannot have a clear idea of what is going on and who is following me for real. I really respect a lot all of the audiojungle authors and I always use music from them. Please with all the respect don’t follow me without reason , is kind of confusing for me and it’s a little bit of a cheap trick to get my attention. If I ever need music I will find you.

maybe they follow you because they like your work?

Why would that bother you at all? They follow you as any other person would, no mather what marketplace they are coming from. And one more thing : you have better chances selling your work to authors from other marketplaces. So let it be as it is… I would prefer lots of followers, cause I could only gain from that, not loose :)

As you see in my message I don’t try to disrespect now one and I try to put this as polite as possible. Well yes maybe is not so bothering but as I said it looks a little bit cheap.

If you remember some time ago “Unique” open a threat about those who follow him, just to appear in his profile page. Its a kind of self promotion. For my opinion, also my case is a kind of self promotion

till the moment when we can see all of the followers, the follow button have low importance for who is followed. I see no utility for me. What should I do with it? Except read the number of followers on my dashboard?

But it works for who want to follow others, since new items from those authors appears on the 9×9 box on the home page. Now that is also kind of broken, since I had followed couple of authors from photodune and currently is flooded with pictures of cats. (I love them! :) but just to exemplify my point)

my question is? how do you intend to use the follower functionality and why having x number of followers instead of y can affect your intended use?

It is just a mater of morality.

Don’t effect me so much.

Is just something that I will never do because I respect everybody in this community.

For example I could follow everybody here just to place my avatar in the profile page of all the authors. And I could do this every week . Its not illegal….but is not moral. And that is all about.

I think that probably you didn’t understand what is this about. The problem is not where those followers are coming from…...but why they follow me, or other video hive authors.

Personally I believe that is a way of self promotion.
