Following a large base of Tumblr users when they don’t follow you back or when they keep unfollowing you is a very bad experience and which many end up going through from time to time. In fact, I personally hate such users who don’t have a follow back heart be it on Twitter, Tumblr and any other social site since the way they act doesn’t look advanced in any way. When a friend of mine shared with me why he had decided to leave such sites including Tumblr and Twitter for a reason being following many yet none of them followed back, I felt how exactly he was feeling and what he seemed to be going through although the end result was sharing with him how he would try to control that from happening.
When you have a big number of Tumblr users you are following, it means that your stream is kept busy with updates from all those you follow, unlike when you have a every small number of who you follow. When a post which you have interest in appears on your homepage, you choose to give it a visit and which is a conversion anyone would want to get from his or her followers and in case you cant gain that way as a result of those who don’t recognize your existence, the choice I personally take is to instantly unfollow them so that I keep my homepage clean with only a few from those who are loyal.
