Yesterday I finally contacted WordPress and today they resolved my follow function problem! So technically I couldn’t follow anyone before but now I can! Thank you WordPress for providing me a quick solution to my problem!
If you guys have any issues with your account, use the question mark icon located in the bottom right of your screen to contact a WordPress community expert immediately (you will see this icon when you editing a post, on a reader etc.). It may not appear when you are viewing your blog via your blog URL. You can contact them via a online chat which is more convenient than email. I highly recommend this service!
Thank you for your understanding and patience!
Bye (for now)
