I don't know about you, but I hate the addition, it's covered under watchlist, it's glitching things, and it hides the first digit in the editcount of use thousanders. Well I've found how to hide it if you haven't, go to:
Special:Preferences click the tab for "Followed Pages". The Fifth check box says "Make my followed list private". Check this box, save changes, and enjoy the good old wiki again, so far this has stopped glitches for me. Hope this helps!
