Provide overview of files being followed

As long as downloaded files are being followed by default, which you might like/want or not, my notification overview is floaded with updates to files that I don't care about.

Of course i can go to the file and unfollow, but wouldn't it be far more user friendly to have an overview (either under files or under notifiction settings) of the files that i am following (similar to for example network contacts) , with option to unfollow, so i can easily choose the files i am no longer interested in?

    I would certainly love to have an overview of all files, communites, blogs, wiki's, forums, etc I follow! Right now There is no way to see what I follow and therefore ends up in my activity stream unless I get an update.  But I'm not sure that would solve the above problem. Perhaps you could do that, but also just give the users an option to deativate the auto-follow in their personal settings. That way a user can switch it on or off as they want. Right now it can only be activated/deactivated organization wide which isn't ideal either.

    I guess it could be done one of two ways:

    1) Give the user an option to uncheck when downloading to not follow the file

    2) Implement what you suggest, i.e. have an additional UI that shows all files I am following and unselect the ones I don't care about. I am afraid that might be a bit unwieldy assuming that those could be hundreds or thousands of files.

    What do you think?
