Suddenly strange new followers

TJ-Fotografie says:

In a short matter of time I receive new followers from nowhere. Most of them have 0 phot's on Flick. What's going on?

Could be new accounts. Could be old accounts with only private photos. Could be spam accounts. Could be lots of other things. The point being there is not necessarily anything unusual about being followed by an account with no photos.

If you don't want them following you just block them. If they appear to be spam accounts report them to Flickr using the Report abuse link at the bottom of their account page.

There is a rash of spam accounts around at the moment, popping up daily in the comments of photo's featured in the Explore showcase.
