As previously mentioned in my blog, the fix for the “Follow count web part” issue has been included on this CU. You can verify that by taking a look at the “Improvement and Fixes” section of this CU.

Please check this link to know in detail about the “Follow count web part” issue which got introduced in August 2015 CU. I’ve given a detailed explanation about this issue on a previous blog post .

So the bottom line here is , if you’re facing the “ Follow count web part “ issue in your environment where-in clicking on the “Follow count web part” throws you an error stating “Followed Count Web Part can’t be displayed because of null reference exception” then patching your environment with October 2016 CU should fix it .

Happy SharePointing !!!       Thanks for reading this post .
