Playing with all departures lately at KMCI and the sattelite airports (lots of fun !), i saw a new request:

"request flight following".

What is the correct answer to this ?

Well, this is something VFR aircrafts can request. So what you would do is (if you know where they are on your radar scope) radar contact, then confirm their location, give them a squawk code, and the current altimeter setting, from here you would give them traffic advisory, and hand them off to the next controller if/when the time comes. But if I recall correctly, you are only able to control IFR aircrafts as of now, so I think this has something to do with the command "Go ahead" and maybe a bug (?).
