Bring back the "unfollow" and "follow"-Buttons
While we are at it… these are Buttons, that are really needed.
If you hit the “follow”-Button on a post, you will receive notifications like when you commented the post - but without commenting it. Nice to keep track of things that are interesting to you, but you won’t have to comment and cause a notification to all others, that are receiving notifications for this post.
The unfollow-button removed this subscription. This works regardless how you followed. If you write a comment, you “follow” the post. If it’s your post, you follow it - just like it works now.
Why I need the “unfollow” Button:
I had some posts, that had some comments. So far, so good. But then the discussion drifted away in a direction, I really didn’t want to read the comments. I would have “hidden” the post, but this is not possible with own posts. I didn’t want to delete it, because if they want to discuss - they should do so. But I wanted to no longer receive notifications.
For this szenario the unfollow-button would be the apropriate thing to use.
