Following a blog

Follow a blog to stay informed about activity in the blog.

About this task

When you follow a blog, you receive notifications about the latest updates to the blog. Following is similar to getting a feed from this blog, but the notifications are delivered to the Notifications section of your home page, rather than to an external feed reader. Anyone can follow a public blog. You can also follow community blogs without being a community member if the community is publicly accessible.

Note: When you are already following a community, you do not need to follow its blog separately; updates about the community blog are automatically included when you follow the parent community.

Perform any of these actions to follow or stop following a blog:

  • To follow a public blog, open the blog and click Follow this Blog.
  • To follow a community blog, open the community and click Follow this Community.
    Note: If you open the community blog from the Blogs application, you can follow the blog by selecting Following Actions > Follow this Community.
  • Monitor blog activity from the home page by selecting the I'm Following view on the Updates page.
  • To stop following a public blog, open the blog and click Stop Following this Blog.
  • To stop following a community blog, open the blog and click Stop Following this Community.
    Note: If you open the community blog from the Blogs application, you can stop following the blog by selecting Following Actions > Stop Following this Community.
