Hi Friends,

what does it actually means if you »follow« somebody or if somebody is »following« you here on BYC?
Does it mean that i get a notification when something is posted from the account i follow?
If yes, that is definitely not working, i have missed a lot of posts from people i follow and i was not notified. Or did i miss something in the settings?
Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Great question - I've been wondering myself!

Your personal news feed will include things from people you follow that you may not be following yourself, like for example...

If I comment on a media post by chrissynemetz it would show up in your news feed but not your notifications unless you've also commented on the same media.

Hope that explanation doesn't confuse you more 😂
