'Following' community Experts and Contributors is vital for getting the most from the npj Biofilms and Microbiomes Community.

When you Follow someone, it simply means that when they publish new content to the community website, we'll email you to tell you about it. You can click a link in that email to be taken directly to that new post or video.

Experts and Contributors will add new posts and videos on a frequent basis, and even though you may visit the community website often, you could run the risk of missing FREE, helpful content from people whose insight you value, if you are not one of their Followers.

What's more, when you Follow someone, they receive an email telling them that you have followed them. This gets them to notice you.

You'll also appear on their list of Followers that appears as part of their profile, bringing you to the attention of fellow community participants.

Take a couple of minutes now to view the Experts and Contributors in the npj Biofilms and Microbiomes Community and Follow those whose posts and videos you don't want to miss.
