Hi @Nathan DeArment ,
Per my research, external user are not able to add site to the area like your picture shows. They are not able to follow sites. Because those external users outside your organization do not get User Profiles which are what the Follow requires. If you want to store access to these pages in their current sharepoint home page you would need to create a user in your tenant and licensing it like you do with your internal users.
