I was wandering if you want to know the activities of a specific question which is not yours (like < xyz> did a comment and < abc> gave an answer) there should be a button like send you updates of this question ? which sends updates of your chosen question and answer.

EDIT : I wanted to get updates in user's inbox !

Every question has its own Atom feed. Look for a link called "question feed" down there ↘ somewhere. If you have a newsreader like Apple Mail, you can subscribe to this feed with a simple drag & drop operation.

For example, here's the feed for this question. See if you can get your computer to do something useful with it.

This now exists in the form of following

You are, as of March 2020, able to "follow" any post - question or answer - on any site. From the linked Mother Meta post:

[Y]ou will get inbox notifications for all new answers (in the case where you followed a question), comments, edits, and notices. You will not receive notifications for any action that you performed
