Hi People.

So what the crack with 'Followers' & 'Following' people on the forum?
I have noticed I have 3 followers, and I feel sorry for them, if they get notified every time I post.. :)
I'm sure they will come to their senses soon and unfollow me..

I'm not Following anyone.... No funny 'stalker' comments..

lmao... Very true mate.
I'm curious as to the function of it. As I'm following no one I'm curious as to its purpose.

This is a carry on from the previous site platform.
Your followers were friends on the previous platform.
Following someone does not mean you are notified every time they post.

If you follow someone then your news feeds on the forum may include posts from those you are following such as if you look at the posting tab when viewing your profile.
I believe it is intended for people to be able to easily see the words of wisdom posted by a forum member.
Hmm, but you say you have followers... I must be wrong then!!:):p
