    No idea - I follow people but have no idea what it actually does so I suppose it's pointless :rofl:

    I thought I was special. :cry2:

    Anyway OP, I guess it's handy to see at the bottom of the homepage (if I am ever on the homepage...!) very rarely, though it does happen, all of the people I'm following are posting on the same thread so it must be interesting! :rofl:

    Or if someone I'm following posts on a 'what's your deepest, darkest secret thread' then I'd love to see what they're posting

    I think it's to keep up to date on what threads they're on. I think on the homepage there is a section which shows what threads the people you are following just posted in

    People follow people to keep updated with what their posting on and probably because they like the user. I don't know.

    Mostly I just follow people back to avoid it being awkward if they follow me first. A small number of people I follow as a sign of respect, however.
