You will need
- - the account "Vkontakte";
- - a computer with Internet connection.
In a social network "Vkontakte", each user can determine the subscribers who have applied to friends. For starters, go to someone who just wants to be friends. Let's see how it interests you. If you don't want to follow her updates, go back to your page, in the section "My friends". There you will see three links. One of them proposes to leave this user subscribers. Click on it. The user will be able to read your updates, but in your news feed his records will not appear. If you have several applications, you can define subscribers from all applicants.
You can convert into subscribers and a mutual friend if the page it does not cause you special interest. To do this, simply bring the user from the friends list. Go to his page. Under the photo you will see a line that indicates that this user is your friend and can read all the materials open to friends. You will see a pop-up window prompting you to delete user from your friends list. By doing this, you automatically turn it into subscribers. If the user tries to begin to sort things out, and you don't want to hurt him, explain that you would like to maintain contact with the largest possible number of people, but can't expand your friend-tape up to infinity.
Other social networks, this problem is solved the same way. However, the term "subscriber" is not everywhere. For example, in the "Live Journal" have the opportunity to receive update notifications interesting journal, not even including this user to your friend-tape. You'll just receive personal messages with the text of the posts. In this social network you can never know how many followers you have. There is another option. It is exactly the same as in "Vkontakte", that is, you just exclude uninteresting for you, log out of your friend-tape.
