How do I follow or unfollow a category?
Following a category means you will receive periodic notifications of items posted into that category. If you are currently following a category, and want notifications to just stop already, you can unfollow the category. Following or unfollowing a category applies to all of the communities in which you are a member.
Please note that if you're following a category, you can't unfollow any of its subcategories (they will appear greyed out). You'll have to unfollow the higher level main category and then follow the specific subcategories you're interested in Following.
Remember, the button will tell you the action that will be taken when you click it. If you do NOT want notifications on items posted in a category, make sure this button says "Follow".
