    @marilynfl when you click “Follow” you are telling the system for your account to follow that other person’s account and it obeys you. So you are now following. So it would not make sense if the button still said Follow (because you already are). Once you are following, the button says “Unfollow” if you click “Unfollow” you are telling the system to no longer follow that other person, so it would not make sense for the button to still say “Unfollow” but correctly says “Follow”

      Okay, I think I’ve got it. It’s circular…the SW toggles around the three options in a sequence: Follow, Following, Unfollow….Follow, etc

      I manage to unfollow everyone, but had to do it manually with each user. Yesterday I clicked in that field and all the avatars I was following showed up on the same page. This time I couldn’t find that option and had to click on each avatar and toggle through each person.

      I’m not allowed any pain meds (even aspirin) for 10 days before surgery and this is only day 6. And it sucks. Big time. Apparently pain makes me even more stupid than usual.

      Thanks, Paul.

    I realized I was getting too many emails since I’m following basically everyone (20 people) except the Pope and Kanye.

    I go into my account & change to UNFOLLOW, but as soon as I go to the next person and select UNFOLLOW, it changes the previous person BACK to FOLLOW.

    So I’m still following 20 people. What am I doing wrong, ObiPaul?
