Get rid of the follow profile option.
Get rid of the follow profile option!!!
There is too much confusing over people follow your profile and not your blog!!
I've think a few other blogs have one profile, is this due to their high number of followers? ... I think it would make things a lot easier to have just one profile and a link on there to our likes?

Can we have an opt out for Friends Activity? I hope this isn't turning into the FB of blogs.

We are looking over how to improve the profiles and make it more clear to everyone what the blog profile is and how it differs from following the blog.
It's confusing. I think you should definitely get rid of the profile and keep it to blogs.
Can you move the people who follow you to have them following your blog? It's annoying having people follow your profile, I don't even know what this means they can see?
I also wish it wouldn't auto follow the profile when you followed the blog.

I hate the profiles
Yes please just have the Follow Blog option, not Profile?
I just wanted to figure out what's the status?
I know this is a free service, but it's almost a year now.
I don't see what following a profile does?! I doesn't actually do anything so is quite pointless being there.

it does me no good when people follow my profile instead of my blog =.=

I do agree that it is a bit confusing having a profile and and blog profile, I think keeping one is more that enough, thank you very much for taking our feedback
Add an option to unfriend if you choose.
I'd like to keep the profile.
I too would like to have all followers following my blog rather than a split between the blog and profile. it's confusing and doesn't help my followers keep up to date with my blog posts. Could you amalgamate all followers and just have the profile as a reference?

I'd like to keep the profile, I ahve found it useful, but I agree that it it needs to be more distinct from the blogs

I agree, I have 300 people following my profile instead of my blog...this does me no good! Can I consolidate them so that my blog/profile are one and the same so all my followers are in one place?
If a person follows the profile & not the blog, maybe put up a notification asking if they would like to follow that person's blog or keep following their profile. (If you guys are keeping that option.) Seems like a reasonable solution to me.

If you have a blog connected to your account, I'd rather see the personal followers automatically combined and have one count, not two. There's really no need for it.
At the very least, can you make it optional to follow profiles? I find it extremely irritating to follow a new blog, then suddenly find I'm automatically following the profile of the blogger as well. I think it should be an opt-in, not an opt-out kind of thing. Thanks!

Please do get rid of the follow profile option, I really need people to follow my blog, not follow me! Thanks :)
Please keep the follow profile option. While bloggers provide the content here, bloglovin is essentially a reader service.
Keep in mind that the writer's work and the writer's social presence are two separate yet equally important factors to readers.
I may not even want to follow every blog, but I may be interested in a writer's perspective, likes, and other activity.
Following the person and not just the work is an important reader feature, and it's one that enhances bloglovin above the many rss alternatives.
I don't mind that you can follow profiles, I just wish you wouldn't automatically follow someones profile when you follow their blog!
