The update adds options to add users to your PS4 as family members, and also allows you to restrict System features using parental controls. Up to 7 members can be added to your family account. You can now follow anyone, previously this was only possible for verified accounts. You automatically follow people you have added as friends, but you can unfollow them.

When the PS4 boots after installing the PS4 System Software Update 5.00, you will be asked to review your privacy settings so you can decide if yo can be followed by others or not.
