Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is there a way to follow the questions and answers posted by a developer on Stack Overflow?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Since this is a question about SO, it belongs on Meta Stack Overflow. – David Thornley Jul 15 '10 at 21:32

@michael Saw it, don't think it's a duplicate of it, even though the chain leads there – Emrakul Mar 15 '14 at 8:26

I have build StackEye - A Chrome Extension for exactly same purpose.

You can use StackEye

  • To follow other users on Stack Overflow
  • To watch any question for any new comments and answers on it.

Install StackEye from Chrome Web Store and go to the profile page of any user and click follow. For example, if you go to Jon Skeet's profile page, you get to see this. Just click on Follow button to follow him and get his wisdom :)

Check out the screenshots available at Stackapps page. Give it a try if you like it.

@Emracool I really appreciate your suggestion but all other questions have been already marked as duplicate of each other. Only this one was left So I posted it here. – blunderboy Mar 15 '14 at 8:05
@Peter Thanks for the edit and especially for the link (legal). I read all the points and they make a lot of sense. Thanks once again for the useful information :) – blunderboy Mar 15 '14 at 21:31
I can't log in to StackApps (not sure why) to leave a comment there... The extension looks great, but has it been tested with a large number of followed users (300+)? Because that's how many I tried to follow and now I'm not sure: either they are all offline, or I exceeded API quota and not getting any information at all. – How About a Nice Big Cup of Mar 16 '14 at 1:01
@ Thanks a lot for taking this step towards following a large number of users. However, as per stackexchange API I can only pass 100 ids at a time to get their activity. Anyways, I have already opened an issue to restrict users to not let them follow more than 25 users. Feel free to make any comment on git or open any issue there. – blunderboy Mar 16 '14 at 3:43
Great extension :) – Richlewis May 27 '15 at 9:16

Every user has an RSS feed. Navigate to the user's page and scroll to the bottom; there'll be a link marked "user feed".

RSS sounds like a very weird solution to this... I would need an external application or browser plugin which is pointed to the feeds of many users to keep a "friend list", and everyone else to do the same to create a "group". – Lucas Gallindo Aug 11 '15 at 15:01

You can see their recent activity on their user page:
