User feeds for content pages

Microsoft Q&A offers different feeds for users depending on whether you are in the home page or in the Questions page.

Home page

From the Home page, users have the option to see all the posts or have a personalized feed as follows:


  • My activity: Questions where you have participated, such as posted a question, article or site feedback; answered a question; commented on a question, article or idea; viewed a question, article or site feedback; voted on any content; accepted an answer; edited a question, site feedback, answer, or comment; locked comments on a question; make a question, article or site feedback sticky.

  • My follows: Questions in tags you are following.

  • My expertise: Questions where you are marked as an expert. If you are not marked as an expert, then this option is not available for selection.

  • My combined feed: This feeds combines all your questions from My activity, My follows, and My expertise.

  • All posts: All the questions posted in Microsoft Q&A. This is the default view.

For any of the feeds above, the default sort order is by Updated date. Additionally, you can update the sort order by Created date, Hottest, Votes, and Views.


Individual questions that user chooses to follow are not expected to show up in the personalized feed. Following the individual questions does, however, allow the user to receive alerts/messages when actions are taken on that question such as answers, accepted answers, and comments.
