Summary: Learn how to configure Following settings for My Sites in SharePoint Server 2013.

In SharePoint Server 2013, following is a user-initiated action that indicates the user's interest in a specific document, person, site, or tag. When users follow an item, new activities about that item appear in the users’ newsfeeds on their My Sites. Users view all their followed items from their My Sites.

Use this procedure to configure Following settings for My Sites.

NoteNote:
Using lower limits can slightly improve performance. Also, by using lower limits, users will follow higher priority documents, people, or sites.
