My question is not a duplicate of Notify when my question has been linked from another question. The latter talks only about linked questions; my request is about both questions and answers.
I would appreciate to receive a notification when my own post (question or answer) is linked to in another post.
That way, I could see how my question or answer is relevant to other questions, possibly leave a comment in case the reference needs clarification/correction, or notice when a post I am the author of is discussed on meta.
It has actually happend to me several times that I accidentally encountered a post referencing something I wrote elsewhere and thought "I should have seen that earlier, then I could have added a comment to clarify what I actually meant" or "I should have seen this earlier, then I might have been able to write an aswer to or read about this interesting related question."
You already get notified whenever a comment is left under your post, so I think it would make sense to also get notified when a comment to your own post is left in another post.
If notifications are too pushy (but I don't think links to your posts happen so often it gets annyoing), a small section somehwere in the "activity" tab on my profile that I could check from time to time would do too.
