When you find other members in the GeoNet community that you wish to connect, you can “follow” that member’s updates and activity. The act of following a member makes them one of your connections.

 

You can follow a member in a variety of different ways.

  1. Navigate to the member’s profile and click the Follow button to the right of the member's profile avatar. Choose the stream(s) to follow them in.
