API support for followed sites
There's an undocumented API (https://tenant.sharepoint.com/_vti_bin/homeapi.ashx/ ) to follow sites and query data around those concepts. For corporate intranet scenarios, we often want to present the data a different way, surfacing native SharePoint capabilities. In order to add a "follow" button on an SPFX web part, we'd need an API to access that.

Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now. We did mention this capability in dev keynote at SharePoint Conference 2019 and it’s coming later this year.

Any update on this one from Microsoft? Those APIs are really needed and not having them makes it really hard to make customizations.

note: I didn't add it in the original post but we'd also need access to the suggested sites API https://eastus3-sphomep.svc.ms/api/v1/
