I have an app I am building where a user can browse through content similar to the Facebook timeline.
One action the user can take is follow this person.
All actions for each piece of content I have placed in an overflow menu based on Android guidelines. However for follow I want to visually indicate to the user at a glance which pieces of content they have followed by placing a star that is either empty (not followed) or filled in (followed).
The user will be able to follow/unfollow from tapping the star as well as clicking follow/unfollow in the overflow menu.
Are there any reasons as to why I should not do this?
