How to Manage Your Social Network Followers & Friends

When you spend time and effort building a network of followers and friends on the social networks, you soon reach a point where you need to start trimming the dead weight, the inactive or those that don’t reciprocate your follow. This is particularly true with Twitter which imposes ratios on following that makes it impossible to follow too many more than follow you, thus forcing you to unfollow to bring the ratio back within the accepted range.

In this article you will learn how to browse and manage your followers & friends, how to find and unfollow those that don’t follow you back, how to see your latest followers, bookmarks, and more.

Requirements

To manage your followers & friends on the social networks, you will need:

  • An account on a supported social network – currently Twitter and Tumblr.
  • An active connection in your Womplify account for each social network you want to manage.

How to Manage Your Social Network

To browse, follow, unfollow or bookmark your existing networks:

  1. On the left menu, click Social and then click Twitter or Tumblr (See Figure 1).
  2. In the Manage Followers & Friends box, choose one of these five tabs:
    1. People Who Follow You, Who You Don’t Follow
    2. People Who Follow You
    3. People You Follow
    4. People You Follow, Who Don’t Follow You
    5. People You Bookmarked
  3. Check the Follow Date and other data displayed for each person and in the right column, click the Follow, Unfollow or Bookmark buttons to suit.

Note: The system will automatically sync your followers & friends every day but you can also manually request a sync (Settings > Connected Accounts) to ensure all is updated before you begin your daily following or unfollowing tasks.
