Friending and following

Hi everyone. I'm new here, and have just been around a couple of days, but I'm already loving this site, and can see that it will greatly help improve my French.

I am a bit confused, however, about the difference between "friends" and "followers". I have friended a couple of people already, but I can't find a link anywhere to follow people.

What is the difference exactly?

Friends are those that you follow. Followers are those that follow you.

Wow I hope that makes sense.
