I am not sure if I am missing something with the follow member option? So far I cannot see much advantage of doing this other than seeing a mini avatar showing in the members online now block.

So what am I missing here?

The activity of members you follow appears in your personal news feed.

Other than that, it has no effect (except on the members block).

Some members lock down their profiles (being able to PM or post on their profile) so only people they're following can contact them for an extra level of privacy.
