How do I follow something in the Forums?

The "follow" concept in the community means that you have found a particular topic or post in the Forums for which you want to be notified when there is new activity. If you are following a topic, you have the option to be notified when a new post is made to the topic and / or when a new comment is added to any post within that topic. If you are following a specific post within a topic, you will be notified whenever a new comment is added to the post. If you add a new post or comment in a Forum, you will be automatically subscribed to follow that post or comment.
