Be social

You can interact with people, repositories, and organizations on GitHub. See what others are working on and who they are connecting with from your personal dashboard.

Who can use this feature

Members of an enterprise with managed users can only interact with repositories within their enterprise.

To learn about accessing your personal dashboard, see "About your personal dashboard."

Following people

When you follow someone on GitHub, you will get notifications on your personal dashboard about their public activity. If someone you follow creates a new repository, stars a repository, or follows another user, the activity will display in your dashboard.

Click Follow on a person's profile page to follow them.

Joining the conversation

你可以与世界各地的开发者建立联系,以提出和解答问题、学习,以及直接与 GitHub Enterprise Cloud 工作人员互动。 若要开始对话,请参阅“GitHub Community Support”。

Communicating on GitHub Enterprise Cloud

GitHub Enterprise Cloud provides built-in collaborative communication tools, allowing you to interact closely with your community when building great software. For example, you can contribute to another user's project by creating a pull request, or use issues to track bugs or suggest ideas in a repository. You can also brainstorm new ideas with your team with discussions.

For an overview of these tools, see "Quickstart for communicating on GitHub."

Participating in organizations

Organizations are shared accounts where businesses and open-source projects can collaborate across many projects at once. Owners and administrators can establish teams with special permissions, have a public organization profile, and keep track of activity within the organization. For more information, see "About organizations."

From your dashboard, click the drop down menu of your username on the left side of your dashboard. Here, you can view organizations that you are a part of and easily switch between them.
