Help - following and privacy issues

Hi. I’m rather new on the Mastodon community and I have some questions.

1.- When I go to a user profile and click on the follow button, it automatically switches to “cancel follow request” or a hourglass icon, like waiting for approval on the other end. When I joined the website this did not happen; it started happening rather shortly after, however. It’s rather annoying because I cannot see the users’ posts on my timeline.

2.- When I post my toots and I set them on “public”, once the toot is posted I notice the privacy switched to “unlisted”. I have attempted multiple times now. I even changed my settings to “public” only, but it solved nothing. This also started happening shortly after I joined. Is it a glitch? Why does it happen?

I await a response. Thank you.
