The Sites page is a place where you can create a new site, where you can search or where you can view sites that you are following. A reminder of how we would follow a site. For example, if we wanted to follow the Employee Self-Service site, you would simply click the FOLLOW button and we're now following this site. If I wanted to follow Inside Sport, I simply click and choose FOLLOW. Now when I go to Sites I'll see that I'm following those two sites.

Viewing the sites page

The Sites page is a place where you can create a new site, where you can search or where you can view sites that you are following. A reminder of how we would follow a site. For example, if we wanted to follow the Employee Self-Service site, you would simply click the FOLLOW button and we're now following this site. If I wanted to follow Inside Sport, I simply click and choose FOLLOW. Now when I go to Sites I'll see that I'm following those two sites.

So I have control over what appears here and what doesn't appear here. I can follow a site for a while because I'm interested in its content and then when my focus or my job function changes I can say I actually don't need to follow this site anymore. As you add sites to the list eventually you will start to get suggestions about sites that you could follow, I won't get many suggestions from having just two sites, but over time SharePoint is tuned to say, well, based on your profile and the people you follow and the sites that you are following and the content you're interested in, here are some other sites that you might be interested in.

This is how the Site feature works in SharePoint 2013.
