# Following Bug

So, when the following feature came out, about 50 of my friends (those who have Brilliant accounts) automatically got following by me, but I didn't want to follow all of them, so I unfollowed a bunch of them, bringing it down to 16. But the next morning, all those other $$\approx 50 - 16$$ friends automatically got followed by me, and I again unfollowed all of the unwanted ones. And I've kept doing this once every day for the last one week.

Obviously a bug?

Did Brilliant staff look at this? I have reported this bug during the launch of the "followers-following" system. I am in the same boat as Ahaan, I need to unfollow the unwanted ones every day and this is quite annoying.
