There are several ways to start following a piece of content, a person, or a place in
the community. Here you can find how to start and stop following items.
Start following people, places, or pieces of content
To start following people, places, or pieces of content:
Use people hover cards. 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 main
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. You can also
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 pieces of content
To stop following something, do one of the following:
Go to the item, then click Actions and clear the
Following check box. You can also clear check boxes
for 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 can still appear in the Most Recent stream,
however, because that stream shows all public activity in the community.
Go to the stream and click the edit icon above the stream. From here, click
next to the items in the left column that you want to
remove from your stream.
