New Feature: Ability to "Follow" Questions

    A couple of months ago we began a conversation with the HubPages community about what new notifications you would like to see on the site.  (See the original and follow-up posts).  Today I am happy to announce a new notification-related feature: the ability to Follow questions.

    What happens if you see a question that you like, but don't have the answer?  Previously, you would have to check back regularly to see if there were any updates.  Now, however, you can simply click the "follow" button and HubPages will email you when there is a new answer to the question.  You can follow as many questions as you like, and stop following a question whenever you like.  One question which I enjoy following is HubMob Weekly Topic: Creating a Financial Plan.

    We hope that this improves your experience on HubPages, and we hope to make more improvements to how Notifications are handled in the coming months.

    Great smile Now - can you tell me why I get so many questions in my account? I answer - another one appears, I delete - another appears. That normal? Or is it like I asked before a few days ago - HP think I have all the answers?

      This is a new feature which we added a few months ago.  You can disable it by going to "My Account" -> "Questions" and unchecking the box that says "Occasionally show me relevant questions in my account screen."
