There are several ways to begin following a piece of content, a person, or a place in the
community. Here are some easy ways to get started.
From any stream you're reading, hover your mouse over a
person's name or avatar, or the name of a place, and click
Follow. You can then select the stream in which you
want to follow the person or place.
Use the Browse menus. Click People from the top navigation menu
(may also be nested under the Browse button), or click Your Content or Your Places from the menu under your avatar, then browse for things to follow. Be sure to check the
Recommended tab to see recommendations based on your individual activity and
connections in the community. When you
see an item you want to follow, click on its gear icon and then
Follow. Then select the stream in which you want to
follow the content item, person, or place.
Use the Search feature. Search for keywords of things that might interest you.
When you find something you want to follow, click on the item. From there, click
Actions > Follow. Then select the
stream in which you want to follow the content item, person, or place.
Stop Following People, Places, or a Piece of Content
To stop following something, go to the item and then click Actions > Following In. You can also unselect the streams from which you want to stop
following the person, place, or content item. You will no longer see updates for
that person, place, or content item in those streams. Those updates will still
appear in the Most Recent stream, however, because that stream shows all public
activity in the community.
You can also go to the stream and click the edit icon above the stream. From here,
click the "x" next to items in the left column that you want to remove from your
