Nice plugin!

This is a pretty cool author follow plugin! I have some suggestion functions to improve this app in future:
– Function to show Posts list from Favorited’s Authors (a shortcode to show post’s list on page)
– Function to show “Who has Favorited Me?” (for registered author)
– Function to “Count Author Favorited” (How many Other User favorite me?) to sort the “Top Favorited Author”.

Thanks for a useful plugin. Keep it in simple and slightly code!
