As you start following people, you have a choice between "friends" and "noise." You'll see this by looking at the top left side of your screen. It's like a Twitter or FB list. Put those you care about most in "friends" so you'll see an expanded view. It makes it easier to see them in the stream. Put everyone else in "noise" for a more compressed view. The beauty… no one but you will know who's in which list. Everyone you follow will see you listed as a follower. Brilliant Ello! 2.
