HDS Community User Guide > Creating Custom Streams > Create a Custom Stream > Start Following People, Places, and Content

 

There are several ways to begin following a piece of content, a person, or a place in the community. Here are some easy ways to get started.

  • From any stream you're reading, hover your mouse over a person's name or avatar, or the name of a place, and click Follow. You can then select the stream in which you want to follow the person or place.
  • Use the Browse menus. Click My Community from the main navigation menu, or click Your Content or Your Places from the menu under your avatar, then browse for things to follow. Be sure to check the Recommended tab to see recommendations based on your individual activity and connections in the community. When you see an item you want to follow, click on its gear icon and then Follow. Then select the stream in which you want to follow the content item, person, or place.
  • Use the Search feature. Search for keywords of things that might interest you. When you find something you want to follow, click on the item. From there, click Follow in the upper right corner. Then select the stream in which you want to follow the content item, person, or place.

Stop Following People, Places, or a Piece of Content

To stop following something, go to the item and click Following. You can also unselect the streams from which you want to stop following the person, place, or content item. You will no longer see updates for that person, place, or content item in those streams. Those updates will still appear in the Most Recent stream, however, because that stream shows all public activity in the community.

You can also go to the stream and click the edit icon above the stream. From here, click the "x" next to items in the left column that you want to remove from your stream.
