What is going on?

So, I was over at GR deleting some followers and in the span of 30 mins or so I received four friend requests from people who appear to be genuine readers with books and reviews and everything. I wonder if this has anything to do with the events of the last few days or if it's all a coincidence? I've never received this many friend requests, this often, over at GR in all of the time I've been there. The requests I get lately are usually from indie authors with an occasional reader thrown into the mix. I'm wondering if my sweet little "feature" on the two sites the other day might have something to do with this? It's weird.

 

I just refreshed the GR page and now there are five. . .
