The Followers module shows the people who are following a user. It’s a good idea to place this module adjacent to the Contacts module because they are opposites.
The number of followers visible is controlled by a setting with a default value is 10. At the bottom is a link “Show all my followers (X)”, which leads to a page where the All contacts module shows all followers of the user.
When you mouse over a follower’s profile picture, a tool tip shows information about the follower. The information you can see is login status, profile picture and some user information for the follower. You can also send a message to the follower. If you have not already added the follower as a contact, you can do so by clicking on the Add as Contact button.
