What are Facebook followers for?

Visitor Question or Comment:

Good afternoon, I would like to know what the followers are for in a personal Facebook profile, and what is the difference with friends.

Response from ALEGSA.com.ar:

If you allow followers on your Facebook profile, any Facebook user can follow your public updates unless you’ve blocked them. They will only see it if you upload it and set it to «public». They won’t be able to see anything private.

When you’re going to post something to your timeline, set your post’s online privacy control to Public. With this action you will share the update with your followers and anyone will be able to see the publication.

If you don’t allow followers, users who aren’t your friends don’t see a «Follow» button at the top of your timeline, so they can’t follow you. However, your friends will follow you automatically.
