PHPfox should include a core "follow" system to limit unwanted friend requests while still allowing other users to see their content.

So you can see all their post but are not allowed to comment or post on anything...right?

With a follow system, you can see (and comment) any posts the user shares as public to the "community" but cannot see anything that is restricted to friends only, like friends lists, personal things the user may restrict to friends etc...

Followers provide an additional vanity benefit as a sort of a goal to get a lot of followers, just like instagram. But friends however, no one cares about how many friends you have. 

 

In a dating theme, the user could ideally, restrict who can send them friend requests and force everyone to follow them intsead, keeping their privacy in tact and allowing other users a way to give the user to "hint" they are interested in them by following them.

That would make a great deal of sense.
