What does Bookmark mean?
Bookmarks enable you to list community content (boards, articles, topics, or individual posts) on a special page so you can easily find it again.
Where is this special page?

Tipp: You can click a bookmark to go to the item.
3. To delete a bookmark, click the check box for the bookmark and click Bookmark Options > Delete Selected Bookmarks.
What does Subscription mean?
Subscriptions let you get email updates whenever new content appears in an area of the community that you're interested in. You can subscribe to a board, a blog article, or any other location in the community. You can also subscribe to a specific post.
Where can you find your subscriptions?
1. Go to My Settings > Subscriptions & Notifications. 2. Click My Subscriptions to see a list of the items you've subscribed to.
Tipp: You can click a subscription to go to the item.
3. To delete a subscription, click the check box for the subscription and click Email Subscription Options > Delete Selected Subscriptions.
The difference between bookmark and subscription is, that you are getting an email notification, when you have chosen "Subscription" and when you have chosen "bookmark", you are having a bookmark in your "bookmark sektion".
What does Highlight mean?
Let´s say, you want to send an interesting Community Post to a friend or colleague. If you want to send the whole thread, this is pretty easy: Just send the link.
But, what if you want to guide your friend to a specific reply? You don´t want to force him to scroll through the whole thread. Well for making this easy, you can use the "Highlight" function.
As soon as you highlight a specific reply in a thread, a new URL generates:
You can send this URL to your friend or colleague and the URL will guide him directly into the specific reply of the thread.
