    Hello

    I've had series of complains from my friends in Ghana concerning reduction in Zidisha page followers (lenders) over the past weeks. On 23/05/2018, I checked that of mine and to my surprise, my followers has drastically reduced from 208 to 1 and as at today (28/05/2018), it has increase to 5. I checked that of my other friends and it seems the problem is across board.

    Please I need some explanations to this reductions.

    Hello George and Mary.
    I've just asked Julia what the reason is for this, and will let you know when I've heard back.

    My followers too reduced from 20 to only 4. Could it be the reason my loan has always been expiring without getting funded?

      I think so because my loan fundraising has been pending since then.

      Hi, Kusi and Patrick,

      The benefit is that next to your image in a lender's "Following" feed, he or she can choose to receive a notification anytime you post a comment on your Discussion page and/or anytime you post a new loan request.

      Thanks for raising this general inquiry. ;-)

      I don't know the reason for the sudden reduction, either.
      It could be that Joost's speculation is correct. It seems plausible.

      I'm sure Dave will provide more information, though,
      as soon as his question to Julia has been answered.

    I heard back from Julia and that's right, Joost, it is related to GDPR.
    It seems lenders need to opt back in to notifications in order to resume receiving the notifications and following the same borrowers.
