I have been using giveaways to permute my new release. In order to have a chance they click follow me on Amazon. But np follows are showing up on my page and there should be about 340 of them. What am I doing wrong?

No followers will ever show up on your page. Ama*zon intentionally hides that number from the author.

Is that because they can "unfollow" with a simple click too?

That's a separate issue, but in general, Ama*zon is coy about sharing customer data, even if it's simply aggregate numbers. It's also why we don't get statistics on views to the book's web page, or how many people read the Look Inside, etc.
