Describe the purpose of EntitySubscription sobject

Knowledge Article Number 000181252
Description What is the purpose of an entity subscription object?
Resolution Entity subscriptions are community-specific sobject. They're only applicable in the community they're associated with - users will only see updates on the subscribed entity in their newsfeeds when they're in the specific community. That's why subscriptions created in other communities will not appear in the default community - they're irrelevant in the default community.

If a user wants to share a record to the community, they will need to provide the communityId to the NetworkId in EntitySubscription object. The followers will be displayed on the community. Note, once the networkId is provided, the follower does not display on the standard Salesforce UI, but in the community. If the networkId is blank, the follower shows up on the salesforce UI.
