Confused about "following" in the forum

I went to the "Places" link and set a bunch of places to follow. I was hoping this would make all posts in these places show up on this page: https://forum.solidworks.com/content?filterID=following~objecttype~objecttype%5Bthread%5D

After all, I had selected "Following". But they don't. The only discussions that show up there are ones that I have participated in (probably because I have it set to automatically follow discussions I reply to). But why don't all of the discussion from the places I am following show up in the Following section? Is the forum using the word "following" to mean two different things?

 

I don't want to view them in the connections stream because in that interface there is no read/unread indication and each post takes up half the screen so I can't browse through a lot of posts quickly.
