Why do some names show up in bold or italics on other people's profiles?

When you are logged in and looking at someone else's profile, you may notice that some of the names of the people, communities and feeds in their circle appear in bold or italics.

  • If a name is in italics that means that you subscribe to the account.
  • If a name is in bold that means that you grant access to that person or are a member of that community.
  • If a name is in both bold and italics then you both subscribe and give access to that person, or you both subscribe and are a member of that community.

This allows you to see at a glance which circle members you have in common with someone.
