    I think it is either following or the following, but not followings.

    Re: following

    According to the Oxford Dictionary, there should be no 's' even if it is used with a plural verb.
    For example, 'the following are both grammatically correct sentences'── quoted from http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/de...ng?q=following

    Not a teacher.

    When "following" is used as a noun with this meaning: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dict...sh/following_5
    it takes an "s" in the plural form.
    Examples: http://fraze.it/n_search.jsp?q=followings&l=0&sugg=off
