Following someone lets you track their wall activity and adds them to your list of contacts.
To follow someone and add them to your list of contacts, click Follow on the person's profile or on the Followers tab on the People page or on your profile.
For more information, see How do I view a person's profile or interact with someone in Oracle Social Network? or Viewing Your Followers.
To stop following someone, click Unfollow on the person's profile or next to the person's name on the Following tab of the People page or on your profile.
For more information, see Viewing the People You Follow.
You'll be asked if you also want to remove the person from your contacts. Unfollowing someone means you won't see their wall activity. If you want to continue to post to their wall and see them in your list of contacts (making it easy to have one-on-one Conversations with them), don't remove them from your contacts.
