    When I click on my profile and then News Feed (http://xenforo.com/community/news-feed/) I see a message "Your news feed is currently empty."

    What is this for exactly and how do I start adding stuff to it?

    I don't use Facebook so I'm not very familiar with all this new-fangled "social networking".

    You need to follow other users and their posts will appear there.

    I think. :confused:

    ETA - yep that's it.

    If you follow other users their activity is displayed in your news feed, i'm not sure what else - I just watched this thread, so I assume any updates to this will also appear in my news feed? But we shall see.

    Edit: Ok, watched threads and threads you've interacted with don't appear... only your followers interactions.

    I hadn't thought of it like that.

    *looks for people to stalk*

    It's a social connection. You can either stalk someone who doesn't like you and you just can't let them go, or you can use it for what it is intended, follow a person you consider a friend, who probably likes you back. And you can keep track of what you're doing (what you would otherwise let eachother know at the end of the day in a bar over a beer ..)
