Follow a person?

I like answers of some experience developers on stackoverflow is there any possibility of adding a follow / fans feature where I get notifications of answers to which guy I am following. I think most of the people love this feature and would be helpful for them to learn more stuff in short time.

Go to the user's page. Scroll to the bottom, look in the lower right corner and click on the "user feed" link to subscribe to an RSS feed featuring that user's recent content. Do this for as many users as you find interesting and educational. Read and enjoy. –  Anthony Pegram Feb 13 '12 at 1:05
    
If you wanted to follow someone's answers, it's already there on their user feed, just plunk it into a feed reader and stalk –  random Feb 13 '12 at 1:10

Stack Overflow has always been about answers, not about users. Stack Overflow is not a social network, and it will resist efforts to make it into one.

If you want to follow a user, simply bookmark them, and check up on their recent activity occasionally.

You can have a follow feature without becoming a social network. I would like to follow certain people who I think are thought leaders in their field. I am interested in their ongoing contributions. RSS sucks. I would prefer a time-ordered aggregated view of followees' questions and answers. RSS doesn't give me this. –  Steve Taylor Jun 9 '12 at 12:16
