Follow members as well as following posts

I have just joined the community this evening and I was surprised to find that there isn't a button to follow other Giffgaff members.

I found the button to follow posts and receive updates when anyone else comments on that thread or reacts to your initial post but I couldn't see anyway to follow members who I found knowledgeable. It seems the logical next step from viewing members profiles to be able to follow them, similar to adding friends.

So I followed the advice and researched the community and labs for the suggestion, I found one post which described my idea.....

However, it seems that the post may be misinformed as I asked a fellow member in the community forum and apparently there is no facility to do this.

Good idea, although if giffgaff wanted it to be more social media like, then they would’ve added this function already, so probably won’t look to implement this.

I can see why you'd want this but it's not for me as that's not the purpose of the community

giffgaff is not trying to create a social network on the Community board right now. If they were, then they would definitely allow you to follow members
