At the moment, when a new user follows you, Forem only sends an email notification about it. If you do not look at your email and instead navigate to Forem website first, you will not have any indication that a new user has followed you. Also in order to chat with someone via Forem Connect feature, both users have to be following eachother.
I am thinking that maybe "follower notifcations" should also appear on the website notifications page? At the moment this page has 3 sections: all, comments, and posts. Maybe we could add a fourth and call it "followers"?
Alternatively we could also add something to indicate who your new followers are on the Dashboard > Followers page but I am not sure that is the best solution.
I am not sure if this has been discussed before but I would like to know what others think about it.
