Hi All,

 

I am just wondering if there any way we can mark a site/content as followed on behalf of another user in SharePoint Online?

I believe this is not possible due to the lack of an API that allows to do this

We have given a try to implement similar and end up of creating our storage to implement favorites. This is not possible to do impersonation unfortunately.
