On Facebook, someone is following me besides my friends and clicking the number of my followers on my page, brings me to a page for which a search for the word Follow comes up with no results (i.e. no references to the word, "Follow" or "Follower" or "Following" etc. on the page).

That is simply not true. When you click on the followers link, all it does it return you to your friends list. The same holds true when you use username/followers - all it does is bounce you to your friends list. I've had other people try and confirm this. facebook.com/<USERNAME>/followers <-- does nothing but return you to your Friends list. – user53733 Nov 23 '13 at 7:59

Assuming you have the 'followers' feature enabled, you can see your list of followers by clicking the 'followers' tab from your Timeline, under the 'Friends' section:

followers link

It's also available at https://www.facebook.com/<USERNAME>/followers

For me there is no "More" drop down menu; see my latest edit for some more info – Brenton Horne Jun 19 '13 at 18:21
What happens when you click '1 person' in the sentence 'followed by 1 person'? – Igy Jun 19 '13 at 19:30
Apparently I wasn't clear enough when I said it in my question, sorry, my fault, .../username/followers – Brenton Horne Jun 19 '13 at 19:38
Goes to that page and if ya look above, in my question, you can see what that /username/followers looks like in the place where you suspected I would see a "More" drop-down menu with Followers in it – Brenton Horne Jun 19 '13 at 19:56
Maybe the person following you also has you blocked or something, which would make that a bug in Facebook's interface for showing you the '1 follower', but i can't reproduce the problem of the view itself not loading – Igy Jun 19 '13 at 22:52

I have the same problem, but I think I've figured it out in the usual confusing Facebook way here: https://www.facebook.com/help/www/216792731707396?rdrhc

Note: If you already allow people to follow you, people who send friend requests that you ignore, delete or hide will automatically start following you. If you don’t want a specific person to follow you, you can block them at any time.

This link shows you your followers. You can just write "My Followers" in the Search bar. https://www.facebook.com/search/me/followers
