Ground rule: If I don't follow you back (and I've actually unfollowed a whole lot of you from the weekend), it's because...I don't know who the heck you are and looking at your posts, profile or stated interests...I can't see any connection.
So a suggestion: Instead of playing the accumulate-the-numbers game, think about whether your interests and the interests of the person you are adding actually intersect. That why you might actually make connections that grow and lead to interesting conversations and more connections.
That's been my working method on G+, Facebook, App Dot Net and Twitter. It'll be my method here as well.
