We're here to briefly talk about the follow feature! Here are a few concepts that you should get on board with to enrich your GirlsAskGuys experience! :)
Following other users will enrich your GAG experience
When you start following other users you will be able to customize your GAG content flow. This will expose you to more interesting Questions and myTakes to view!
To view content ONLY from your followed users simply click/tap on the Followed Users icon ("buddy" icon) located at the top of your Live Feed and Questions/myTakes list pages.
You will also see these users' opinions first on single Question and myTake pages, since the users you follow will be stacked on top of other opinions.
Recommended Questions/myTakes favors your followed users too.
You can see all your follows (users/topics) in your profile under the "Follows" tab.
Filter your feed by Followed users!
When you post a question, an opinion, a comment, or a myTake, your followers will see your activity in their Live Feed if they filter their activity by "follows." Similarly, you can filter your Live Feed, Questions, or myTakes pages by clicking the "buddy" icon located at the top right of those pages. This will show only the activity from the users you are following!
Following "Private" profiles
When you have a private profile, only the users you are following will be able to see the information on your profile. You will also receive a notification when a user requests to follow you and then you can approve or deny the follow request.
Receive messages only from users you follow
By following users you can even customize who can message you. There is a setting for this in your profile. To change this setting, simply go to your profile/settings page and check the box that says "Allow messages only from people I follow" and then click "Save."
Earn Xper points for followers!
Every time you are followed by another member, you will receive +1 Xper point. Being active on the site will get you noticed and help you receive more follows which is a great way to earn more Xper points!
PS: Following Questions/myTakes feature is being improved and will soon be available again.
