Why some people here are more popular then other? Some people here have a lot of followers. It's strange because most of this followers do not care about language exchange. Why people here want to make friends, instead of learning?
I guess some people are confused about the purpose of this site. They confuse it with a social networking site and not a forum for learning and language exchange. I understand your frustration.
I think they did't know how to using itlaki .. like me :D
"Why are some people here more popular than others?" and "It's strange because most of THESE followers..." I'm sure you can see the difference but I put in bold-font anyway.
Well maybe some people are more interested in making friends and are willing to help people learn their language and not so much interested in learning a language themselves.
Is it not true that both people need to follow each other to message one another? I follow almost everyone who follows me (even if they don't send a request - which they may have none left for the day), just so they can message me, mainly just to exchange Skype usernames (even though mine is on my profile) as having followers on here means nothing to me - I don't check that part of the site. The only time I know someone's a follower is after hovering over their picture after I've helped them or they've helped me.
Why people are so popular also might be to do with the language(s) they're learning. For example, I have hundreds of Chinese contacts, to the extent that I don't need to ever find anyone, they all find me. I guess the number of native Chinese speakers learning English far outweighs native English speakers learning Chinese, hence popularity.
I have seen many women has a lot of followers and they have many correction in their notes or comments.
If you want to pick up the real partners who want to learn English , you may see their record .

Check this guy if he/she is aiming on language learning chiefly instead of making friends . Make sure his/her remark is to look for language partner , then add him/her . Anyway , be certain to click the right man you want . As for numerous followers , pay less concentration on them , they do not matter a lot.
I have created my profile in this site recently. It's an ordinary issue that men usually seek for women and vise versa. The point is in on the characteristic of men and women. I believe, men are facing easier than women in following subject, and because of this fact you can find more follower in women's profiles. On the other side peoples activies are so important. For example I have never follow some one who have not connected for one or two last monthes.
