Whitelist users to improve control of user unfollowing. Add users to a whitelist to prevent accidental unfollowing. After carefully choosing the right people to follow to build a high-quality community you don’t want to damage any relationship by accidentally unfollowing users. Protect important users against accidental unfollowing by adding them to a whitelist.
Whitelist lets you group these important user profiles you would want to exclude each time you populate your activity screen to perform unfollow actions. A green 'whitelisted' tab appears on the user profile card.
Whom Should You Whitelist?
Some of the users (non-exhaustive list) that you could whitelist are:
- Thought Leaders
- Clients and Customers
- Sales Leads
- Conference Attendees
- Close Friends
- Experts and Celebrities of interest
- Brands you love
