When you find other users in the community that you wish to connect to you can “follow” that user’s updates and activity. The act of following a user makes them one of your connections. 

 

When choosing to follow a user you are choosing to follow that user’s activity in a stream of your choosing.  You can follow a user in multiple streams.

 

You can follow a user in a variety of different ways.

 

  1. Navigate to the user’s profile and click the Follow button in the middle of the profile page.
