What does it mean to follow someone on Facebook?
You automatically follow people who you’re friends with. You can also follow Pages (example: businesses, organizations, brands) and people who aren’t your friend on Facebook but allow everybody to follow them. When you follow someone or a Page, you may see updates from that person or Page in your News Feed.
How do you ask people to follow your account?
Ask them if they would be interested in following your page so that they will be up to date on your posts. This is a way that you can ask someone if they would like to follow you on Instagram without even having the conversation directly about Instagram, but rather talking about something else and then asking them.
Wait a minute, you may be saying—you visited a person’s Timeline page and didn’t see a Follow button. All that was there was the normal Add Friend button, no Follow button. That is, a person has to “turn on” following to have any followers. …
To add a follow button on Facebook, you need to set the “Who can send you friend requests?” privacy setting to “Friends of friends”. You also need to set the “Who Can Follow Me” privacy setting to public. After you’ve changed both of the privacy settings, your Facebook profile will have a follow button.
Can someone secretly follow you on Facebook?
People can quietly “follow” you instead of sending a friend request (if your profile is public rather than private), meaning that your posts will appear in their News Feed without your knowledge. In other words, there might be some people seeing your public updates more regularly than you think.
What is the difference between followers and following on Facebook?
Finally, as we’ve mentioned, followers are people who have opted to receive updates from a person or page. The important distinction is that “following” is a separate action from the other two relationships. So, you can follow a page you haven’t “liked”, and you can choose to “like” a page and not follow its updates.
Are Friends notified when you follow them on Facebook?
Yes, when you follow a public figure or a non-friend, a notification will be send to them. No, unfollowing or re-following any friend will not send notification to that person.
