I want to implement a feature that will allow a user to follow a topic or to subscribe to a topic and get notified when there is a new message in the topic. Any ideas?

You can use Push Notification in which you can create channels. Use can subscribe to channels and recieve message if somebody will post on the channel. See tutorial here

I am not sure this will address my use cases. For instance I want to show the user a list of objects that he is following.
and of course i will like to make this cross platform.
I think you can look into Message/Queue Service ( to make it cross platform. You can make use of storage service ( if some functionality is not there.
