    Question about 'Follow' button

    Nowadays, I saw a lot of people have active the 'Follow' button on their Facebook. I know how to turn on/off the 'Follow' button, but how to make the ‘Follow' button beside 'Add Friend' disappear so that people who added/followed you can't unfollow you anymore?
    Click Here then you'll know what I mean..

    Hi @LanG_1314 ; , welcome to the forum.

    From the link that you have posted, my guess on how the profile is able to garner a following on Facebook without the "Follow" button is by ignoring friend requests. By ignoring or deleting a friend request, the account sending the request will automatically become a follower of your profile.

    Looking at the profile, it is likely to be created by an individual that gets a lot of friend requests (the "II" in the name could mean that it is a second account).

    because many peoples deny the friend request and they will be automatically to their followers. Followers can like and comment but they can't chat with you.

    Yes exactly, I found follow buttons on some profiles. Also some peoples have too much followers. I'll like to know if there is any process to make follow button visible on profile.
