What is the functionality of "following?"

What I don't understand is what "following" is actually supposed to do. Does it give me a simple RSS feed of all the people I decide have something insightful to say? Does it put their posts and comments into my notification feed? Or is this about as useless as "hearting?"

I ask because, all of a sudden, I've got like a bazillion followers that I didn't have a few days ago.
