Use of 'Create Follow-Up Task' button in Task

Hi All,

I would like to know the exact use of  'Create Follow-Up Task' button in Task. I tried to find its exact usage but not a luck. 
Is there any dependency between the two Tasks from which Follow-Up task is created or its purpose is something different ?
Thanks in Advance for yor valuable answers.

Hi Mike Jack,

As per my knowledge,

Tasks are related to specific records. lets say you have a task on opportunity...now you want to close this task and create a followup task. in principal you are not creating a task to follow up on existing task..the new tasks is again for the opportunity record. .. Thats why the system does not create a link between the follow-up task/event and the original task that the user is following up on.
