Not really a suggestion, just a few laughs, and applauds that we can't "like" our own comment. I like the wording. "You cannot like your own post". So, thank you, MDC for discouraging narcissism around here thumb.gif

 

Seriously though, I'm not being sarcastic- I actually find it amusing, and good, that I can't accidentally like my own post. I did this yesterday trying to like someone else's and had to laugh at the wording wink1.gif Yes, I know, I'm easily humored!

 

Anyway, good feature and stuff!

Not narcissim, but I love the assurance of, "nobody is following you." It doesnt make me feel like I have no friends, just that I dont have a crazy stalker. smile.gif

I kind of wish they would either get rid of this, or state the name of the person following you.  I looked at my profile awhile back and it said "You currently have one (1) other users subscribed to your activity feed."  Aaaaand, that's about the time I stopped posting a lot.  The feeling of someone actively looking at every move I made on here creeped me out enough that I don't feel like feeding someone's need to find out what I do here.

One of the recent product updates made it so you can see who is following you. If you go to your profile, you can see the person who is following you. :)

Is there something I need to do to make it happen?  It still just says what I quoted above for me...no specific names.  For all I know, it could be my sister (hi StephandOwen!) :lol:

It's not me shrug.gif I just looked at mine and I do have a follower, which I didn't know about. It's someone who has been a member for like 6 or 7 years but has very few posts. Kinda creepy.

 

AllyRae- if you click on "My Profile" and scroll down you'll see it (mine is to the right of my albums). Mine does tell me the name of the member following me.


Steph, DH Jason (1-1-11), DS Owen (10-3-03) and DS Kai (10-13-11)
