Follow members as well as following posts

I have just joined the community this evening and I was surprised to find that there isn't a button to follow other Giffgaff members.

I found the button to follow posts and receive updates when anyone else comments on that thread or reacts to your initial post but I couldn't see anyway to follow members who I found knowledgeable. It seems the logical next step from viewing members profiles to be able to follow them, similar to adding friends.

So I followed the advice and researched the community and labs for the suggestion, I found one post which described my idea.....

However, it seems that the post may be misinformed as I asked a fellow member in the community forum and apparently there is no facility to do this.

I agree we should be able to have people "friends" here we can go to to ask about issues, and have support if needed (emotional) there is never a bad thing about being able to follow someone. The other of course having the option to block or not even see follow requests if they so choose, I am FOR this idea, the types of support being able to follow someone, offer alot of promising results, for giffgaff and its members, we a are part of one group remember. Some are not as comfortable saying what they like even behind a screen. Yet they could to someone they have connected with. Hypothetically, it could not change lives only, could improve or even save lives. I of course am looking at a Michch wider picture ????????

@lucyl143 thank you for your reply, I agree with your suggestion regarding 'blocking' members, as I have noticed, in the short time i have been here, several members which have a sarcastic tone to their comments, no one in particular but I think the atmosphere is too positive to allow a few bad apples upset the whole community. Blocking members would provide an easy solution to an issue which could upset any vulnerable members which may be a member of this community for company.
