Site Wide & My Friends Activity – What’s More Useful When
Not a technical problem but more a usability observation.
I think Sitewide Activity is an extremely useful module, it provides a snapshot and really draws new (and unregistered) users in. Yet, I can easily see that when a site grows, it quickly becomes less valuable. With 1000 users on a site, do I really care what everyone is doing when I’m already a member? Can I even keep up?
That brings me to the My Friends view of the Sitewide Activity. In the scenario with an established site with many users, that would give me a much more useful snapshot when I log on.
So here’s a thought – why not combine these views in the sitewide activity widget? When someone’s logged out or unregistered, ALL site activity shows. When someone’s logged in, the My Friends activity becomes the default view. Perhaps with a way to easily toggle back and forth. Perhaps even with a default view selector in a user profile?
