Trying to follow a friend but I keep unfollowing after refreshing?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to follow a friend and everytime I refresh or leave the page and go back, I unfollow that friend. Does anyone here know what the problem is?

Thanks in advance.

One instance when I saw something similar to what you describe is when my son would double/multiple click the "Follow" button... Try one click and refresh. HTH, Daniel.

I tried that and it didn't work, but thanks for the advice

I had the same issue. This worked for me after doing some lessons and getting a 1 day streak.

I had this issue for days now, but apparently this is how we can bypass the ANCIENT bug, thanks

This happened to me quite awhile ago, as well as many other people. It doesn't have anything to do with double-clicking, though that is a good offer. It is a temporary glitch. I reported a bug when it happened to me, and the next time I logged on to test it, it was fixed. Not sure if it was because of the report I sent, or just fixed itself after a short period of time.

I would take Lrtward's advice and just don't worry about it for now. If you want to be really sure, you could send a bug report, and then just leave it for a day, or somewhat less. Try it again.

I think I'll report it and see what happens. Thanks :)

I'm experiencing this issue too. It's quite annoying, as I talked one of my friends into joining a few days ago, and I still can't follow them :( . Have tried following other people too, with no luck.

I have this problem too and are unable to follow a friend.

I'm able to follow other people, but they are not able to follow me. They click [Follow], the screen correctly updates to [Unfollow], but without clicking anything a few seconds later it changes back to [Follow] and they are not following me. Re-tried clicking [Follow] and the same thing happens again and again. I'm wondering if they need an app update?

No. This is a bug, which many of use have been experiencing. What you speak of is a little different though. It has been known to fix itself over a short period of time. I would have them send a bug report, and just wait a day. It should fix then, soon.
