I Will Follow You, Follow You - Until I hit the wrong button!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

We have been puzzled of late to see some of our favorite Active Rain members fall off our following list. It's difficult to notice until you see a comment with the follow button unpressed. Thinking it was an AR glitch (sorry), we didn't think much more about it, and vowed to hit the follow buttons when we noticed a problem. 

 

Recently though, while commenting on others posts with my cell phone, I realized what was happening. Since we often visit others posts from their comments on our post, we hit the profile. This screen pops up, and on a small screen it's pretty easy to inadvertantly hit the unfollow link instead of the blog link. 

Therefore if we've followed you, unfollowed you, and then followed you again, we're not messing with you. It's purely accidental. And hopefully, we'll get everybody back on our "following list" soon - where they belong.

Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.

Hmmm. I found that I wasn't following people I thought I was following, and figured it was just a glitch. Maybe it was a glitch of my own doing!

Good point, Debb.  I've seen this sort of problem with some other sites as well when it comes to the way sites display on smaller mobile devices.

Yes! I noticed it and was bothered by it too. I wasn't sure if it was an AR glitch or the person I was following didn't like me anymore.

Lesson learned - there's always a good reason. Never assume the worse until you get the facts. Whew!!! I'm so glad I learned this today.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I can see how that could easily happen!  My fingers are prone to "hitting the wrong button" on my cell...so good thing to watch for on AR!

Oh wow.  I generally don't comment from my phone, but I'll have to be careful for when I'm using my iPad.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD   Those tiny links have caught us all at one time or another.  I've had to re-follow some Rainers myself after accidentally clicking the wrong link

You know, I have noticed the occasional "unfollow" from my list... I just figured I'd said something that they didn't care for.

Maybe it's not me, after all?

Sadly those tech glitches can cause issues if we aren't careful. I have almost made some similar mistakes on my phone when using the Facebook app.

It seems like a common problem and easy to do without noticing.  Fat fingers on small devices don't help.
