I JUST noticed that you can actually "follow" someone here haha :) I do not have one yet.. so now i'm searching for people that I can follow (awesome awesome) Do you follow people here to give/receive opinions on their questions? or have similar interests that you follow them to get to know them?
I do. On the old website you had a friends list (both parties had to accept) and now you have follow (only one party needs to accept). I always made it a habit to periodically go through my friends list and answer any dangling questions (ones that had no answers or few answers, or were just poorly addressed by the community).
Today, this is much easier for me to do because of the way live feed and its filters work.
But yeah, basically this is a courtesy I have been doing for more than a couple of years already.
I do. I pick randomly and see what questions they answered mainly because me and this new automatic scrolling updater don't get along at all. And it's easier to get a list from someone else than to try keeping up with that.
Following other G@Gers makes it possible to filter LIVE FEED by only Users You Follow (and you can filter by activity TYPE, as well).
For that reason, I definitely Follow others to see what all they have to say... on whatever. Whether it's their questions, their opinions, or their comments, once I notice humor and/or intelligence and/or synthesis, I'll naturally want to see more of that they have to say.
