What am I following?
Some following is automatic, e.g. when you become friends with someone, you automatically follow all their events (adding books, reviews, etc). Also when you join a book club, you automatically follow the club's events (adding items, scheduling meetings, etc).
You can choose to follow additional aspects of Connections, e.g. a user (by going to their profile and clicking the “follow this user” icon) or an item (again you'll see the same icon):
The main following box
On a user profile, the “My following” box will show the latest five events that the user has chosen to follow:
My following - "Show more"
Once you click on “Show more”, you will see a lot more information about your following:
All events of your friends and other users you follow on Conncetions
Users who follow your events
Users whose events you follow
An option to change “My following” settings
In the “My following” settings you can choose:
To allow or disallow other users to follow your events
To allow or disallow showing your events on the Connections bar ticker (this is the bar along the bottom of the library catalogue that opens Connections; it displays latest events across the whole system)
