I think it would be good to have an option to have it added to the user profile, and instead get a notification and when you click on your notification you get sent to your profile tab for it instead of having a pm.

Ah! It's so clear to me now. Definitely a "will add" feature.

This is great idea!
The only thing stopping me from downloading/installing it right now is that for my forum's purpose's, as users are part of particular groups, it would be awesome if the 'group' itself could be followed in this way. So any member in GroupZ, which is subscribed to to follow, when they post a new thread, those followers are alerted.

Any chance of a feature like this being added?

Great mod, thanks! Some suggestions...

1. Add a link to follow or unfollow a member to postbit and member profile.
2. Add a "follower" and "following" count to postbit and member profile.
3. Create a page with a table of top members being "followed" or "following" including links to follow or unfollow each, and make it sortable (e.g: most / least followers, etc).
4. Add content types for creates album, posts visitor message, creates calendar entry, etc.
