From a practical viewpoint, I favor "following" as being less, well, geographical.
I work for a printing company, and sometimes well-meaning people don't realize that "the below [points] " may well be more accurately described as "the points at right" once, say, their Word file is turned into a brochure.
To me, "following" implies position in the flow of the text, whereas "below" implies physically being under something.
