With Webtalk you can Follow someone without connecting. This feature allows you to see the user's Public posts and activity. You may add the user to your connections if you plan to communicate with them in the future.
Likewise, anyone that Follows you can see your Public posts/information. If they want to send you a direct message, they can connect with you. You have the option to accept it.
You can be connected with a user, but Unfollowing them will keep their posts out of your newsfeed. You can still reach them by searching them in your book of contacts.
To Unfollow Someone:
1. Go to the user's Profile page
2. Click the blue Following button and a drop down will appear
3. Click Unfollow
TIP: Edit Contact if you would like to further review the connection and/or delete the contact.
NOTE: You can delete the contact from your connections but continue to follow them (in order to see their public posts).
