Help please, I can't follow people

I have never once been able to follow people except through notifications telling me that someone has followed me. I have never been able to see the follow button on people's profile; and people are rarely able to follow me. Can this please be fixed? I am having a lot of difficulties with it and it is quite frustrating. I've tried to figure it out, what the cause is, what I must do to fix it, but as of yet, nothing. I'm thinking it is a bug. Please fix it? Thank you.

Status update: It's all fixed, just had to talk to my teacher about enabling it for my class (:

This is the cause of you being in a classroom. Your social feature is restricted, thus meaning nobody can follow you, and you cannot follow anyone. You would have to get your teacher/parents to change this.

I'm not positive, but I would think that if your parents were okay with you following/people following you, then that would get changed.

I can't say for sure. Maybe they have override settings or something. Hopefully you can just talk to your teacher and they will change it.

Here are your privacy settings:

I do not remember exactly which parameter related to subscribtions, but it is one of them. I think the last one.

In classroom or A/B tests. I think your settings were overwritten by the privacy settings of the classroom you joined.

If you have entered your age as under 13 when you signed up, then you cannot follow people unless they follow you. unfortunately, there is no way to change your age.

I put it as 14, as that is what I am. I've no reason to put it as 13.
