Jane Doe is following you … what does this mean?
I know what it is to follow someone on Instagram or Twitter, but what does it mean on Duolingo? I get a notification every day that a new person is "following" me, but I have no idea what that means. What is the point of following another student? Is there some benefit I am missing?
When somebody follows you it really doesn't mean anything, there is no benefits to it, all they can do is compare their xp with yours.
Thank you. My only motivational skill at this point can be my streak. I'm stuck in past perfect tense in Italian at this point :-(
it just means they added you as a friend, however you cannot do anything with the user apart from see there XP. its a good way to have competitions with them though xD
