Leave a legacy.

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.

Sorry but just wanted to explain, I was more thinking along the lines of the community feeling, helpful members were mainly the kind of people I were thinking about following, so to find answers to your questions easier. Sorry if I didn't explain

I believe i have followed someone in the old forums by just clicking on the member’s name and see in what they had posted.
