Psh I'll tell you some secrets to gain a few more followers: Answer a lot of questions! The more you get your name out there, the more people will follow you. Be nice, use correct grammar, and be helpful. That's all you need
Usually you just have to click on someone's profile and press follow and it is up to the person if they wanna follow u back or not. But you should be focusing more on answering questions than hoping for followers and best important is to remember to have fun ! and meet new people.
It isn't. Have some pride and don't beg. That is sad... Be more helpful, and creative w/ replies. Ask fun, witty, and UN-annoying questions. Be more involved w/ Ask community. Also be nice don't start an argument. Good luck.
