The original - all you have to do is click on the person and it shows if you are following. With the new person page you have to actually go to the page to find out or to choose to follow. It has been so easy to just click on a person and click on follow. This is particularly good when you have a family with many children and you want to follow them all.......you do not have to go to each page. This maybe too late for the change but there are still some things that the original is good for.
