    These two are correct, and those two forms are the only ways in which you can use those two words in those contexts.

    Obviously "follow" also doubles as a verb and "following" doubles as a verb and a noun but like I said, in the context you've provided there are only two ways to use it and you've nailed both.

    -Nah-
