How to View Your Etsy “Circle” - dummies

By Kate Gatski, Kate Shoup

To view your Etsy “circle” — that is, the members you’re following, as well as any who are following you — make sure that you’re logged in to your account. Then follow these steps:

  1. Open your Etsy profile page by clicking your username in the upper-right corner of any Etsy screen.

  2. Click the Followers link on the left side of the screen to open your Followers page.

  3. Click the Following tab.


To stop following someone on Etsy, click his entry on the Following tab to open his profile page. Next, hover your mouse pointer over the Following notification and click the X that appears. Etsy prompts you to confirm the removal; click Yes.

Interested in finding out who’s following you? No problem. By default, Etsy notifies you via e-mail any time someone follows you. (If you don’t want to be notified, click the Your Account link that appears along the top of every Etsy page, click the Settings link on the left side of the page, click the Emails tab, uncheck the Someone Follows Me check box, and click the Save Settings button.)

In addition, you can view a list of people who have followed you by clicking the Followers tab on the Followers page. Note that just because someone has followed you doesn’t mean you’ll see her info in your activity feed. You must follow her for that to happen.

If you’ve gone the secret-admirer route with your favorites, anyone who follows you isn’t able to see items and stores you’ve hearted. Otherwise, this info is visible for all to see.
