We are aware of this. The team is aware of this. There will be a solution. I have heard of that issue sometime last week, but found it not pressing enough to investigate, or make a fuzz about it.

Stack Overflow-the-company made some changes to user profiles in early August 2021, which, let's say, were not taken very positively: Some changes to the profile while we make it responsive The "last seen" part of your profile is now only visible to you and the moderators on each site. So, unless you are a moderator, you cannot see anybody else's &...

Every user has an RSS feed of their activity, which you can find at the bottom of the Activity tab of their profile page: There is no other way to be notified of their activity within the Stack Exchange network (e.g. via inbox notifications). You'll need an RSS reader to consume this feed.
