Readers have been telling us for some time that they want ways to more quickly get to the content that matters to them. We’re working on a number of new features to tackle this and we’re thrilled to be able to show you the first few of these now with:
If you follow a topic you will receive notifications when a new item is published for it, while liking an article or a comment lets the contributor know that you appreciate their efforts. You need to have an InfoQ account and to be logged in to unlock these features.
Once you follow a topic or a peer you will get notifications, that you can customize from your profile page. You can choose to see them only when you are on the site or to receive notifications by email (Email notifications can be turned on/off and can be set to daily vs weekly)
