Let’s see. I know tumblr has unfollowed more people than I have from my account and I’m awful at figuring that stuff out, so half the time I realize it if I’m passing a mutual friend and realize I haven’t seen that person around in awhile.
I finally unfollowed my ex about a year after we separated. He kept blowing up about things about me and it was just too much for me to constantly deal with, so I just decided I couldn’t handle that any more. That was a good decision made too late.
I have tried to cut my “fluff” sometimes. Which is those blogs I follow that are nothing but nature, vacation spots, or some other kind of picture only blogs. Sometimes when I get overwhelmed with how fast my dash flows and how many of the people I miss, I will unfollow.
I have unfollowed some people that I realized I had never talked to, neither of us had ever commented on each other’s blogs. I could look at their blog and not be able to tell you one thing about them or their life. I realized I really didn’t know them at all and there was no interaction between us.
I have at times unfollowed some people that have unfollowed me, but it’s been after a long time and I realized there really is no interactions between us. But I have followed plenty that have unfollowed me, just because I like their blog.
I also recently unfollowed a bit of porn. My kids were around too often when tumblr was scrolling by and they don’t even need to catch a glimpse of that. I still look, I just don’t follow.
I think this covers it pretty well. If this was a specific question and you were worried why I unfollowed you, there may be a chance tumblr did it?
Thanks for the question.
