There is not a way for users to automatically follow a space but you are able to create news streams which can be visible to everyone. This document talks more about the News feature All About the News Feature
While editing a News stream you can select your audience (Everyone or Specific Users )
Within the stream you can select the type of content you want to appear, activity from places and/or Blogs
This allows for your community to see content without having to actually Follow a place.
Hope this helps.
