Suggest entry for Q&A - how to follow a tag

Q&A describes what a tag is, how to search using tags, and also how to submit, however the guide doesn't indicate how to follow a tag.

This would be very useful entry on how to set up following tags for new people interested in setting alerts on tags (in my case for alerting on new questions which I can help answer on).

Maybe also can add a hint in the settings option were you set alerting based on tags linking to the Q&A.

Great initiative consolidating down into Docs / Lean / Q&A!

@KarlChal thanks again for your feedback and helping us evolve the Q&A platform. I added an entry in the FAQ page.

Q. How do I follow a tag?

A. Following a tag allows you to get alerts on the tag related to a particular service. In order to follow a tag, click on Tags on the top navigation bar, and hover the tag you want to follow. Click on the Follow button.

If you want to receive notifications when a question is posted on the tags you follow, click on your Avatar, and then Settings. Make sure you have an email for notifications. Then, on Q&A email notifications section, select Questions in tags you follow and click on Save.
