If you unfollow somebody, their updates stop appearing...BUT, if people you follow respond to an update you *dont'* want to see, you still get it :(
We're working on better filtering capabilities now...if you have specific needs, please share :)
Eg, my personal want is to have the "mature" filter applied on profile feeds as well as the one we have on the status update list and the question page list...which we're already working on.
Click the "all" link below the box of followers on the right side of your profile. Then there is a link below the person's description that reads "stop following $username". Click that, and they should be off your list.
*Also* click edit my settings to stop the system from automatically following somebody who follows you. The "edit my settings" is the top, center, about 2 inches to the right & slightly below your prfoile photo.
Okay, I am going to un-follow every single on my list. I will have no followers and I will not follow anyone just to keep the inane status updates and questions off my page.
The stop following username only appears when you are following them. I already did that. My followers has no such designation.
okay...tried that...now how do I remove my "followers"?
