How to properly follow a Facebook post

Many times when people want to follow a Facebook post that interests them (for comments etc), they comment "F" or "Following" or "I want to know that too". This is not the correct way to receive notifications of a specific Facebook post. Here's how to do it instead: On the right side of the post that interests you, click (or tap if on a mobile device) on the 3 dots. This will open a context menu.
