I would like to know how I can follow a post so I can read any new answers concerning this post.

    One way is to "bookmark" it by clicking the star on the left. Then you'll find it among your favourites, so you can come back to check later. Your profile page will display the number of new events that happened on favourites since the last time you checked them. It's the blue number on the favourites tab. But you still need to check manually. Sorry, I don't know of a better way. – Szabolcs Sep 6 '15 at 16:25
  • There could be a different solution on Stackapps. – C. E. Sep 6 '15 at 17:46

For your own questions there is a check-box Send me new responses to my posts via email (with settings) that should do this. I cannot recall a similar mechanism for other people's questions besides the use of Favorites as Szabolcs describes above.

You could check the number of answers and the last activity date using the stackexchange API
