I discovered an issue with SharePoint 2013 and AAM.

Here is the scenario:

  • Create a web application to host your My Site; define an internal URL (such as http://my)
    • Don’t forget to create the root site collection (use My Site Host) and allow self site site collection creation
  • Extend this web application to allow remote access; define an external URL (such as https://myextranet.domain.com)
  • Create and configure the User Profile Service Application; this is required to allow your end user to use My Site and social features
  • Create another web application to host other services ; define an internal URL (such as http://intranet)
  • Extend this web application to allow remote access; define an external URL (such as https://extranet.domain.com)
    • Allow end users (or specific ones to connect to the site
  • Connect to your My Site, with a user which has access to the previous site; use the external URL
  • Go to the Sites tab (shown on the top bar, just on the left of your name)

  • You should see all sites you are following

Take a look at the URL’s shown for each site >>> this is showing INTERNAL URL, AAM’s are not taken into account
