Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.
If one of my friends ask a question on Stack Overflow, how do I get an alert or notification? With this feature, I can help them to solve their issue. Currently they have to inform me by email or chat.
If you go to your friend's profile page, at the bottom you'll see a link to their "user feed". This will give you an RSS feed of your friend's activity.
