Inside, the List thing has been implemented, to replace the Follow feature. It's a good thing that you can add one person to several lists. How useful this setup is still remains to be seen. Personally, I find that there's more than a handful of default groupings already. Since it has a Recommended Buy portion, it just might be another one of those "recommend me, I will recommend you" sort of thing. The good thing is, if I am not mistaken, they've already removed the Achievement related to the number of Followers that you have. It jut might be that this time around, the Recommended Buy feature may be used more responsibly.
Welcome as these changes may be, there are some other developments that I would be more interested to see in the future. I'll discuss that in a future post.
