One of the most important and popular features in the new 1x is the groups feature, where you can discuss photography with other very skilled photographers from over 160 different countries. You can dicuss and post pictures in over 80 different groups and even create your own.
To make it much easier to keep track of all discussions you are participating in there is now a follow feature for forum threads. When you write in a thread you will automatically start following it, which means that you will get a notification when someone else writes in that thread. There is now also a "Followed topics" tab in the groups and forums overview.
