I just noticed this after finishing the first two quests in act 3. If you hover your mouse over the strength stat, the yellow text, which I assume is part of the advanced tooltips, shows as this," Stength item bonuses are multiplied by 2.5 for followers."

I relogged to make sure it wasn't my eyes messing with me, and then I checked the other 2 followers and it shows the same on all of them.

Sorry for no screenshot. When I hit print screen with the client open it just takes a picture of my desktop screen and not the game client.
