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 github.com/blunderboy/stackeye/issues/21 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

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".
