Follow another user in Visualforce page

Hi folks,
        Can anyone tell me how to follow the another user in Salesforce Org?
There are 3 user in my org.
like user1,user2,user2

User3 wanna follow user1 
for that how to write vfp;

<apex:page standardStylesheets="true" showHeader="false">  
   <chatter:feedwithFollowers entityId="{!$User.Id}"/>

   <chatter:follow entityId=""  />//I dono what to write here

Thanks in advance

You have to indicate the User Id in the attribute entityId
<chatter:follow entityId="UserId"  />

Refer to these chatter code recipes here: https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Chatter_Code_Recipes

You can also add an apex controller to query the list of User Ids you need, see sample code below:
<apex:page controller="VFC06_ChatterFollow" standardStylesheets="true" showHeader="false">  
   <chatter:feedwithFollowers entityId="{!$User.Id}"/>
   <apex:repeat value="{!userList}" var="usr"> 
       <apex:outputText value="{!usr.LastName}" /> <chatter:follow entityId="{!usr.Id}"/>
public class VFC06_ChatterFollow{

    public list<User> userList {get;set;}
    public VFC06_ChatterFollow(){
        userList = [select id, lastname, firstname, profile.Name, profile.Usertype from user
                        where isactive = true
                        and profile.Usertype = 'Standard'
                        and id != :UserInfo.getUserId()];

But it doesnt show the feeds that are posted by another After clicking the follow button on the bottom side ..
For Example
there are two users

For that I have create a Visualforce page that you given above.
I didnt see the feeds of user2 when I am running visualforce page on user1 login

 Hy Shamina,
         Please help!
Hello Karthick,

The previous code provided was only to follow a specific user from a visualforce page.

If you want to show the chatter feeds for a user, check the samples codes provided for recipe 8 and 9 on this page:

Hy shamine,
     Are you there?

Use the chatter:feedwithFollowers tag to show the feeds of another user, where entityid = id of user2
But you can have only one chatter:feedwithFollowers tag in your visualforce page.
Example below where "usr" is a variable in your apex controller of the user2, and the page will be viewed as user1
<chatter:feedwithFollowers entityId="{!usr.Id}"/>
