All users can subscribe and like Stories.
Users who follow Stories are automatically notified (on the platform if they are connected or by email) of any activity on this Story.
In which cases am I automatically subscribed?
Every user who has access to a Story can proactively subscribe. Besides, certain interactions immediately lead to the user's automatic and implicit subscription to the updates of a Story. It happens when:
- being the initiator of this new Story
- updating the Story
- editing metadata or adding tags to the Story
- liking, commenting or being mentioned
A user can quickly access Stories he/she follows by activating the "followed" filter in the search
To proactively subscribe to Stories, click on the dedicated option via the Story's menu.
Of course you can also unfollow Stories at any time.
Following a content implies being notified of:
- new comments on the content
- changes made to the content
- content reshare
Point of attention, only the contributors of the content are notified of the new Likes
Likes express agreement, approval on shared Stories. It is an encouraging signal for any contributor.
When you like a Story, you automatically become a follower.
The number of "Likes" can be used as a way to sort results when searching. It is also taken into account in the activity statistics.
