how does following work
why can i subscribe to some poeple immediately but for some it sends a floowe rrquest

@yeah it's a setting that they set on their profile
some people are fine with anyone following them and some people want to review you to make sure you're not like a fascist or something (and some basic masto etiquette, like pronouns in your bio, some sort of actual bio that isn't just empty, and having some posts) before they let you follow

@yeah In Mastodon there's a setting that makes your account private. It prevents anyone from following you unless you approve them first.

When you try to follow someone and it sends a follow request, it is because the person you are trying to follow has made their account private.
