Following other users

Following users is a great way to discover new content, and be part of the most recent conversations happening in your network.

Why should I follow other people?

Many comments posted through Disqus are hilarious, insightful, or just fascinating to read. Following other users keeps you up-to-date with the latest news that's relevant to you. After you choose to follow someone, his or her activity will show up in your home feed.

How do I find people to follow?

You can follow other Disqus users the way you normally would from the discussion or on someone's profile, but we've also added some new ways to follow people. 

If someone starts following you, or they reply to one of your comments, the you can follow them from within your notification feed by clicking the follow button next to their name. 

You can also follow a user from the Interesting Commenters section in the sidebar of Disqus Home.

How do I block people from following me?

While the functionality to block followers doesn't currently exist within Disqus, you can Remove a Follower and you do have the option of making your activity on Disqus private. Additional guidance on what to do when situations on Disqus become abusive can be found in the Abuse Overview.
