Is there a way to follow people’s activity?

I see a lot of related questions to watch a question for answers, but is there an option (like in Jive) where you can watch users for contributions? There are a lot of users I feel like I could learn a great deal from, and I'd like to be notified when they contribute quality content to a tag of my choice (i.e. email me when user ABC contributes to tag XYZ).

Not a dupe and not answered. I'm not talking about checking RSS feeds and the RSS feed functionality doesn't satisfy what I want. I want an email, like Jive, when a user I have a 'watch' on posts something in general, or in particular. I'm not going to check however many RSS feeds for however many users periodically throughout the day. Following User Activity != User Watch –  Droo Dec 25 '09 at 5:29

There is a RSS user feed on every user profile available.

I don't care about RSS feeds. I want an email, like the question said. –  Droo Dec 25 '09 at 5:33

There is the RSS option, of course. Here is yours. It isn't tag-specific, but probably comes close? There is a tag RSS too - not sure you can combine them, though.

You can combine the two when searching, but sadly, no RSS for search results. ( meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5857/rss-feed-for-searches ) –  Shog9 Dec 24 '09 at 21:36
