A month ago we reintroduced the “Follow” button. Follow lets users customize the activity they see on their CrunchBase home page.

Since the relaunch, there were over 32,000 Follows by 5,300 users on 1,900 unique profiles. The overall Following trend has Square, Andreessen Horowitz, and Peter Thiel in the lead (see more below):

Under each CrunchBase profile picture, the star icon indicates the number of Followers and an eye represents page views.
