To help you stay intouch with the places and people you need to on Our Town Story, we have follower/following system in place.
When you visit the profile belonging to a place, county/local authority or another Our Town Story user, you will see a button labelled 'Follow' to the right of their name. Clicking this makes it easier to stay in touch with the activity in that profile. It will appear in the timeline on your profile page.
It also makes it easy to mark your 'favourite' places - just follow the towns or villages you're most interested in, and then by clicking 'Profiles You Follow' under your user name at the top of any page, you'll be able to go straight to an index of your favourite places and people.
