How do I follow a tag? I looked at the FAQ but I'm not seeing anything on any part of this page for me to follow.

Here's a screenshot of where I get stuck.

Here you were searching for tags, instead go to and you'll see at the top:

It's faster than searching for posts associated with the tag.

Ok cool I found the tag and followed it. When I go to my feed now, though, I'm still getting a bunch of posts from tags I'm not following. Is there somewhere I can go where I can only see the stuff that I'm interested in?

The tag's page itself? As kantos said, you are either on global feed or see things with more than one tag (and possibly badged content, I can't recall if that's enabled by default).

While there are quite a few Canadians here, I doubt you'll get more from this place than from a local news site. Not trying to push you away or depress but it's just a state of things. Look around for other topics to discuss as you see fit would be my best advice.

Also, as someone who's Polish-German, I can tell you that this place is saturated with USA stuff. If it's too annoying to scroll through: filter a tag. That's what I've been doing when something seems to spam my feed.

Well, you know what they say about being the change you want to see. I'll try posting some #canada and #cdnpoli stuff.

Is it possible that 1) you're looking at the global feed as your default or 2) the posts you're seeing on your feed are in multiple tags - one of which being one you follow?

That's interesting. forwardslash, mk, rob05c.

Usually, you'll see "#canada# has been used as a tag" under the search bar if any results showed up. As seen here.

You can always click the posts your search finds, then you'll be able to navigate to the tag themselves from there.

Here's the link to the tag itself. You'll see the "follow #canada" there.
