Activity Streams

Activity streams aggregate all of your site’s activities across a BuddyPress installation.

Enabled BuddyPress components make use of the activity stream component, which means any sort of activity can be recorded. Blog posts, new friendships and blog comments are among the most popular activities recorded. Users are also able to filter all of their friends’ activities to check on what they are doing on the site.

Furthermore, custom components can also hook into the Activity Streams component, meaning any sort of data can be tracked and recorded.

Sections

The following is a table of contents outlining each specific area that the Activity component entails on a BuddyPress installation with the Activity and Groups components activated:
