I click the button "Follow" in a question thread (at "header" level), where can I see the list of all the threads I am following?

Currently, I do not think, tha there is such feature - I use notepad/draft blog to keep track of followed threads.

You can't see such list as it is not available.

"Following" content means that you get new answers or comments to this content listed in your activities, "following" was never a replacement for the "bookmarks" from the old SCN platform.

That's about followed tags. Do you mean another idea, Jürgen?

It is just the title that speaks about tags, the comments mention other followed content as well.

There was a second similar idea which pointed to this idea for consolidation

Okay. Looks like Sajid is taking it literally though. I'll ask him (in the idea comments).

Hello Steffi,
I have provided some more comments in my response to Jurgen below:

Hello Jurgen, I will raise this request again when I get the chance to do so. This has been considered during the refinements but while showing the followed tags can be easier to do, and will be feasible on the new landing page being worked on, showing all individually followed items is still being discussed. We would need to figure out where such a page will live as it is expected for this list to be long. This will also have to gather content from different platforms as users can follow questions, blogs, and discussions. With our available resources, it will be more likely that we are able to implement the followed primary tags/topics first so users can access the relevant topic pages as easily as possible and then enhance this with future iterations.
Personally I do see the need of bookmarking content here. Because this page would essentially be a list of bookmarked (or individually followed in this case) items.

The best (and for me obvious) place would be the profile.

The possibility to follow questions and blogs and then not having these items in a list somewhere to get an overview is a bit strange. I think where there is one thing, there should also be the other.

Regards,

Steffi.

This is completely true! I was surprised to learn myself that we had two separate levels of subscriptions available (tag level - individual content level) and they both just get dumped in the followed activities. We can tailor the user's content feeds greatly if we leverage this control in subscriptions.

Jurgen,

Yes, I miss the "Bookmark" functionality from the previous version.

Requirement:

I click on button Update on a thread.

I go to my "Followed Activities" or "Notification", there I should get a counter and button, when I click that button, then all the threads that I have marked as update should appear.

I probably want this too.

On the other hand I want a kind of automatic following for all questions where I added a reply to not miss any new comment or other answer, as currently I only get this when I actively click "Follow" .

But this wish would then a bit conflict with the case of using "Follow" as a replacement for bookmarks.

I have brought this to the attention of our UI designers and IT Jurgen. Participation should auto follow that piece of content for the user.

I think, you wish to have something like this as control (on thread, tag and topic level):

It basically results in something like this:

The numbers in tabs indicate the list of threads of different follow levels and result in applying a custom filter. When you click on a topic from these lists, it jumps at the place, where you left-off the last time you were logged in.

There is nothing comparable at this point in our platform.

I use manual links stored in a text file or a blog, because we have no granularity yet to filter explicitly followed threads in activity stream and many updates sink under 'show more' before I have a chance to see them.

I do not remember well how bookmarking worked in Jive, but I think, that it was just to help you find links of interest, not to inform you of updates.

For content, where I was interested in the blog main content, I believe, that I used bookmark, when I was interested in content updates - I used follow (in case I decided not to comment).
