Office 365 & SharePoint 2013 – Disabling the ‘Following Content’ Feature
SPO sites (but not site collections), have a feature called: ‘Following Content’
This feature is enabled by default when a new site is created. When it is disabled, performance may improves by approximately 20% to 25% for document heavy workloads.
- Navigate to Site Actions and click on “Manage Site Features”.
- Next Deactivate the “Following Content” feature.
