What happens when you Follow Yourself" on Fluther?

Asked by flo (12278points) 1 month ago

I was looking for a long time not seen user, and I came across “Follow Yourself”. Why do I need to follow myself? It never occured to me to follow myself. What happens exactly when you follow yourself?

You should just try it. Ben and Andrew put the option there for a reason.

Shenanigans.

Probably get some tin pot narcissism award or some such trinket.

KNOWITALL's avatar

I don’t see that option on My Account.

The brown on your nose would be yours and not somebody else’s.

It’s hilarious! Try thanking yourself too. :D

@KNOWITALL It’s not on your account. You have to go to the profile of someone who is following you.

That’s Auggie’s account. You’re on the first page of her results.

It’s interesting.

Oh that link is so painful.

Maybe the mansion should have a cemetery. It would prevent uncomfortable moments when someone has been away and asks about another jelly. It could be an account opened just to use the profile area to list members who have passed.
I have meant to suggest it before, but forgot. That page reminded me. There have been so many. I think it should be posted by the founders.
Anybody?

If anyone has tried it, please report what happened.

Can’t you just try yourself?
Are you wary of what’s going to happen?

flo's avatar

Yes, @rebbel I am. I’m afraid.

flo's avatar

…Have you tried it? If not is it because you’re wary too?

rebbel's avatar

I did it.
I’m still alive, as is my computer.

Can’t remember what ‘they’ said, it is years ago.
Was something humorous I’m sure.

Don’t be the last girl in the pool, JUMP!

flo's avatar

What happened when you tried if you did? And what’s wrong with being the last one?

Where is the link to click on?

Dutchess_lll's avatar

Above some one said you can’t do it from your account. You have to do it from the account of someone who follows you. I think I follow you.

ucme's avatar

One positive is you get to watch your cute little arse, assuming of course you possess such a thing.

Patty_Melt's avatar

Yes, I have tried it and I survived.

What’s wrong with being the last in the pool? For one thing, fear has a scent,and that scent attracts bullies. You don’t want to smell like fear, do you?

Here’s another reason, suppose there is some great reward. Do you want newbies in on that before you?

You die, instantly.

flo's avatar

@RedDeerGuy1 Have you seen it and done it?
@Patty_Melt All I know is you haven’t tried it, yet? right?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@flo No. Its ok. I’ll let this one go.

flo's avatar

Oops @Patty_Melt You did try it, “Yes, I have tried it and I survived.” But you don’t say what happened. I mean people survive all kinds of things, dog mauling, .... cancer… What did you survive?

Dutchess_lll's avatar

Geez. You get sent to the Wikipedia page that discusses narcissism. But now that I had to explain the joke it’s not funny any more.

flo's avatar

@RedDeerGuy1 Why? You’re scared too, right?

Dutchess_lll's avatar

You’re scared of a Wikipedia page?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@Dutchess_lll I did it years ago. I can’t remember how to do it.

Dutchess_lll's avatar

Above they said you have to go to the account of someonenwho is following you and find yourself on their account and do it from there. I tried to follow you so you could use my account but it acted like it it wouldn’t take.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Dutchess_lll I didn’t see how to thank yourself, but I did the other. Cute, real cute.

Dutchess_lll's avatar

I don’t see it now either. But it used to be there.

Dutchess_lll's avatar

Dang it! I had it back…the “thank yourself” option. It was on the lunch thread. But now I can’t find it. Try changing your phone setting to desktop….

SavoirFaire's avatar

You can only thank people who have answered a question that you have asked. So if you want to thank yourself, you need to post an answer to one of your own questions. Warning: it’s a similar joke (but there’s a little more to it first).

Dutchess_lll's avatar

OIC! @KNOWITALL…you have to answer one of your own questions to see it.
