It would be great if you put "follow" button on actors/actresses, directors and movies pages so we could be able to hear upcoming news about them. It could show up on our profile pages like there are two new messages such as Johnny Depp announced for a new movie or the new trailer of Black Mirrors' new episode has been realesed etc. Under recent circumstances we always have to visit their pages to learn if there is something new or not. You can develop this kinda feature, can't you?

This functionality is already available on android tablets /  smartphones. The Android IMDb app has a "Notifications" section. This allows you to receive notifications for all News, Box Office Mojo, Movies Opening Today, Latest photos, and/or Latest trailers; for your Watchlist Titles; or for Titles and/or People you add specifically.

There is a little flag at the top of each Name page in the Android app the if clicked will add that person to the list of People you wish to receive Notifications for.

This works only on the App; it does not carry over to the site.

Nice for those who have the app, but what about those of us who are still on desktop computers? Are we going to be left by the wayside because we don't use our cell phones for anything other than making phone calls? (I have a really old phone, and the web no longer works on it.)
