I am interested in following a few people who have a huge reputation in a particular field (for example Unix), so that I can get informed everytime they contribute to Stack[Overflow/Exchange] sites, so that I can go get enlightened. In short, I want to be an official follower of such experts.

    If you want to follow a user's contributions, you can follow their RSS feed linked at the bottom right of their profile page. Sep 25, 2013 at 10:59

    The experts probably do not want to be followed.

We are not a social network. We are a Question and Answer website.

Having more social features of this sort would take away the focus of the site.

  • This, and I am not sure that Jon Skeet would want that much of a fan club
