How do favorite questions work?

Whenever I answer a question and subsequently leave the page, I only get notified of new activity when somebody comments on my answer or leaves a comment with @username in it.

I would however like to stay up-to-date on other contributions, so I can learn from them and perhaps even improve my answer.

How can I be notified of new activity on a question I've answered myself?

    @TheEstablishment, the context and the root of the question is different. – Tabrez Ahmed May 28 '12 at 9:09
  • I don't see how. You tagged this one [feature-request], but then answered it as if it were a support question about an existing feature. We already have one of those, I linked to it above. If anything, this question is mistagged; you're not requesting a feature, you're soliciting support on how to use an existing feature of the site to do something you want to do. – Cody Gray May 28 '12 at 9:10
  • @TheEstablishment, Then I'll retag it... I am sorry... Just wanted to share the information... – Tabrez Ahmed May 28 '12 at 9:13
