Can we have an opt out for Friends Activity? I hope this isn't turning into the FB of blogs.
To be able to disable "Friend activity"
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.
I like using bloglovin to follow blogs but I don't like that I can be "followed" when my entire profile is private. I want to delete my followers but have no way to do so. Get rid of it!

I honestly don't care what other blogs are reading. I'm interested in finding and following blogs not their profiles which is just too confusing. As a blogger myself I think people new to Bloglovin follow the profiles not realizing they won't see the new posts. It's basically starting over when trying to build a following.
@Joanna Carlberg - i do not think it appropriate to fob us off with trying to differentiate between types of follow, when the request is quite specific - Get rid of the Follow Profile option!
You are ruining a perfectly good app for many with something we did not ask for, nor do we want!
Please permit us the option to avoid being followed if you are unwilling to get rid altogether?

Yes, following a blog-writer and the blog itself, but separately and twice makes no sense and confuses many bloggers. I personally have to go through after following a blog, to unfollow the blog-writer in order not to have it twice.
Isn't Bloglovn' for following blogs? But so many people end up following a profile that I never really set up instead of my blog and there is no way for me to tell them that they followed in the wrong way! Get rid of profiles!
I don't want to be "followed" at all............. How can I keep this from happening ......... or do I just quit "Bloglovin", and use some other site ........??

I think you could still keep the follow a profile option but just make it more clear that its the profile they're following and not the blog. Maybe the button could say "follow my profile" instead of just follow or something like that and after they click follow there could be a little pop up that say's "follow my blog" or something like that.
There really is no point of the profile follow button. Remove this option from the website and please let that delete all the profiles we are currently following. I am unable to 'unfollow' profiles and it's driving my nuts.

Don't make it 'more clear' just get rid of the follow profile option. Since this option is available I barely get any followers on my blog but I keep getting followers on my profile which sucks!
I don't have a blog but I have followers! How do I eliminate this feature as I don't want any followers. Very Creepy. Just want to use the site to follow other blogs and not as a social networking experience. Will delete my acct. if I can't get rid of followers.
I agree! I have followers of my profile, but what's the point in that? It would be far more beneficial to follow my blog, where I actually post.
Helpppp. Went I publish my post the thumbnails do not appear.
I absolutely do not want to automatically follow a profile every time I follow a blog. I just want to read the blog!

If I could interact with my followers through my 'profile' then at least I wouldn't feel like I was ignoring them! Hopefully everyone will just follow my blog as that's more interesting!
I agree with this. I dont like the follow profile option and I hate that it links together when I follow a new blog. Please unlink them at least!

Is there a way to transfer followers of my profile over to my blog? As the people that follow my profile, follow because of my blog!
I agree the follow profile is pointless! Is the stat counter I have displayed on my blog show profile followers or blog followers? If it is the profile follower, then I'd rather remove it. I want people to follow my blog! Doesn't make sense. It is too confusing! I didn't even realize there was a difference!
I have seen some blogs, they do not have a "follow profile" button. You can only follow their blog... how can i do this? I do not want to show up my profile.
I think that the profile follow option is a good thing, BUT I cannot stand the fact that when I'm following a new blog, I'm automatically following the profile in addition... If these two option could be separate and unlinked. I would be a very happy bunny.
I agree. There isn't a single reason for anyone to waste their time following me. Yet, they do.
