Times Higher Education describes it as follows: "FutureLearn  would have a “very powerful social architecture” that will be familiar to users of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter... Alongside now established Mooc elements such as video, slides, text, audio and multiple-choice quizzes, students will have their own profile pages and will be able to “follow” others studying on the platform."
