Before you begin

Note: If you do not want to follow an entire community, you can follow specific community content to get updates about that content. For example, if you are interested only in updates to a community wiki, you can follow the entire wiki or a specific wiki page. To follow community content, open that content from the community and click Follow to view the options available for following that content.
