    Many things on History Hub can be "Followed":  Communities, Questions and other content, and People

     

    "Following" allows you to receive updates and notifications when something new has happened:

    • A new Question in a Community
    • A new Reply to a Question you're interested in
    • A Friend has posted something new

     

    Following a Community:

    Click the "Follow" link in the header of the Community of your choice:

    (Note that Following a Community will not Follow any of its Sub-Communities.  These must be Followed individually.)

     

    Following a Question Thread:

    Click the "Follow" link in the sidebar of the Question:

    (If you interact with a Thread, such as by replying, or liking it, you will automatically Follow it until you un-Follow it.)
