 The Friends vs. Followers paradigm is ubiquitous enough on the web and
 within social networks, that I think there is value in bringing this
 plugin into BuddyPress core.

 In some ways, the traditional "Friendship" relationship model is overly
 simple. In other ways, it's so completely clear that it's comforting to
 know what it does and how it works.

 The problem with Friends as it works today is the back-and-forth
 acknowledgement and acceptance of the relationship. Followers removes that
 complexity, and acts more or less as a funnel for isolating the global
 activity stream down to the individuals someone cares most about.
