Auto Follows can be an incredible resource in onboarding your audience. Regardless of community size, the first impressions that users have of your community will likely be the first pieces of content that they see after the login or create their account.
When you create a new Auto Follow in your community, each new user will automatically follow that user upon account creation. They have the option to unfollow that person (if they so choose) but in the case that you want to highlight users who are sharing great content or engaging in the right way, making them an Auto Follow is a great solution!
On Talegate for example (Honeycommb owned community) the Auto Follow accounts are a diverse set of content sources that users see when their account is created.
