Haha, I follow them for a lot of different reasons. Sometimes it is just to be kind, but other times it is because they really have potential! For example, I followed Gators because he is hilarious and we always have really awesome conversations! I followed Phlorence_is_back for practically the same reason, haha :) Some people make me laugh so hard! Haha, but I like MOST people I meet on this website :)

Well, I follow them because they contribute. I've actually only followed 7 people, because they really help out. Other than that, I follow everyone that follows me. I follow first 5% of the time. Lately, No one has been helping out... They all answer with humor. That's why I never follow first anymore.
mostly when i see decent questions or answers or if they say follow me i don't mind new faces to watch when they just start on here i'm new so i don't know much about the people on here honesty..places where they live or been ...ect. a little joking around for laughs helps break up time on here..=)
When I am on "browse", "by connections" the list of questions that come up are determined by the people on the list I follow. So if someone frequently answers inane questions that I consider to be a waste of time I will remove them from the list of who I follow. On the other hand when I "browse" by "recent" if I frequently see someone answering questions that I like then I put them on my list of who I follow. That's why Cjkenkel is sure to be on my follow list for a long time to come.
I go by tone, intelligence of answers, a good sense of humor, someone who doesn't take things personally, and consistency of good answers. If they answer with "I don't care...lol" , I have a hard time keeping my patience with them so I quit following them or never start. There are quite a few young people who have good answers I enjoy, but I also gravitate towards my age group, except for a few younger people from India I find very very smart and interesting. I will follow them always.
I follow people that have something about them that stands out over other people. That could be that they are really nice, intelligent, have similar interests, make me laugh, or they think differently than most people.
