About this task
You are always notified when your wiki access changes. When you follow a wiki you are notified when a page in the wiki is created, updated, or deleted, or when a tag, recommendation, or comment is added to a page. When you follow a wiki page you are notified when the page is updated or deleted, or when a tag, recommendation, or comment is added. When you follow a wiki or wiki page, notifications are sent to your home page. You can also choose to receive updates by email in your email settings. See Setting email notification preferences
In addition to being able to follow content, pages, comments, versions, attachments, members, and most lists in Wikis (such as the list of wikis you own, or public wikis) provide feed links. With a standalone feed reader or newer web browsers you can subscribe to those feed links. Your feed reader shows changes when they occur.
Feeds reflect lists as they display when you click the feed link, filters and sort options included. For example, if you filter a list with a "birds" tag and sort by name in ascending order, clicking the feed link creates a feed of wikis tagged with "birds" and sorted by name in ascending order.
