Hello,

 

New to Sharepoint and learning. Trying to enable "Follow" feature for sites. Currently when you click on this button at the top right you get a message:

 

"Sorry, you're not setup to follow. 

Unfortunately, it looks like your account hasn't been set up to follow documents or sites."
 
Following content is enabled in Site Features and I did turn on permissions in the Sharepoint Online Administration under User Profiles -> People -> Manage User Permissions and enabled the checkboxes for the group "Everyone except external users"
 
What else am I missing to enable this feature as I can still not follow any site we have setup?
