I Understand the friend list that we had on the 360 and pending friend request. Now I can have a name pop up on my followers list , is this similar to a pending friend request ? Is there a real purpose for it ?
It's a different way of adding people you'd like to play with again without having to have both parties agree to be friends, you can still see your followers activity, so if you want a game with them you can. You decide if you want to be 'full' friends by adding them.
