The ability for a community member to follow activities as well as be followed is established through two components : Follow and Following.
The Follow component must be associated with another resource, and this association is already established for community members and features.
The Following component simply lists the members that are either following the current member or are being followed by the current member. This social graph of the relationships between members is included in the user profile established for a community site.
If it is desired to add a Following component to a page in author mode, locate the component
- Communities / Following
and drag it into place on a page where the social graph should appear.
For necessary information, visit Communities Components Basics.
When the required client-side libraries are included, this is how the Following component will appear :
Currently, it is necessary to set the property to determine whether the component displays the follows relationship, or the following relationship.
