Adding Friends

My flatmate added me two days ago as a friend using my email address. I was immediately added to his friends and he can follow my progress, while I still do not see him in my friends. I was never even asked whether it would be OK that he follows me.

First of all, I think it is not OK that somebody can just find out that I am participating here without me being asked. Even worse, see my profile and progress, without me knowing. Maybe i can change that in the settings, but I don't think it's OK to have it as it is in a standard setting.

Secondly, I would like to automatically follow the people that follow me.

Cheers

Ya, it's OK to have followers. But I have not even been informed that I have a follower, nor was he added to my "friends" in my profile. And btw, "not any info" is not true: He sees, which languages I learn, how far I am, get's emails when I get better then him. That is not "no info". I want to be asked whether I wanna share that information or not.
