When you follow a user on SlideShare, all new content that they upload will be displayed on your SlideShare newsfeed. If you wish to follow a user, just navigate to their SlideShare account (www.slideshare.net/username) and click on the orange 'Follow' button.
Followers are users who are following you and your account. Your followers will get updates on SlideShares uploaded by you.
