Engadget Forums Tips: Who should you follow?

"Engadget is made of people!!"

One of the great things about the Engadget community is that there are a huge number of knowledgeable and passionate users who love discussing technology. I've had a ton of fun and consider myself fortunate to get to know a number of people better (even if we don't always agree on our mobile phone choices).

Last week, we talked about how to start a discussion (www.engadget.com­/discuss­/engadget­-forum­-tips­-how­-t...), this week let's talk about how to follow someone. Following other users on Engadget is one of the best ways to stay plugged into what's happening in the world of technology! When you follow an Engadget user, you can choose to receive alerts when they post new topics, as well as see their activity in a special hidden feature that's available right here: www.engadget.com­/stream/

You can easily follow any Engadget user by mousing over their avatar in a discussion and clicking the old "FOLLOW" button. Alternatively, you can click on their username to go straight to their profile and click the "FOLLOW" button from there.

Easy? Good! Without further ado, here is a helpful list of people you can follow to help get you started. This list includes both interesting Engadget staff and exceptional Engadget users.

Hey! Thanks for the shout-out! :) That's a warm and fuzzy feeling right there...

I love how my example posts are complaints. That seems about right :)

Well I think you raise some pretty interesting points about particular devices. Hah, my little introduction post was going to actually say something like, "and he often wonders why people use certain gadgets."
