It doesn't seem that you have any pools set up yet.
The pools section is where you can keep all your interactions with others on the site.
Follow and connect are an integral part of being a part of a network. You follow and connect with any individual and can follow companies. Following adds updates to your feed, connections you can contact.
Creativity is all about inspiration. If you find work that you like while on CP then click on the Poolit button on a person or companies project page and we'll add it into your own inspiration scrapbook.
Being an open network companies and people are free to request being added to a project that they have worked on with you or your company. Look out for the requests and expand your work across the CP network.
