I use favourites on this site because there is no way to go and view all my previous questions/answers. On my own site I use my user activity plugin, of course :)

But favourites are also useful for keeping track of useful questions. When I finally upgrade my site to 1.5 I'll be favouriting a bunch of repeat questions so I have a quick way to close as duplicates.

I'm sure there are better ways for regular users to use favourites, though!

This is why I was so happy finding your plugin!

"But favourites are also useful for keeping track of useful questions."
Would like to see statistics of how many people really do this! @gidgreen

"quick way to close as duplicates"
that is smart. So you use it as a admin tool!

I *guess* it is not clear to most of the users how to use this feature. I have not found a usecase yet, after 3 months of usage...

PS: Same goes for "My Updates" - I never use it as I cannot see what is NEW and what IS READ. There comes the History plugin, and my question http://www.question2answer.org/qa/14901/how-to-change-link-of-my-updates-qa-page-php

...and: it is actually confusing at how many spots you can see your activities (but they are always different!).

user (profile page) > New Activities (scroll down)
updates > All my updates
updates > My content
+ plugins :)

That was obviously the reason for the comprehension question of user gerard here: http://www.question2answer.org/qa/12712/diff-between-all-my-updates-and-my-content
