Social Activity: Interacting with comments
I was just thinking about how to extend the Social Streams which is integrated in this community package.
We have the:
- Site Wide Activity
- My Personal Activity
- Friends Activity
Instead of just having the activity streams inform you about my and other users activity, how about the ability to interact with each others from within the activity streams?
Like for example if this activity shows up on the Site Wide Activity:
Ezd wrote a new blog post: My first blog! 43 minutes ago
"This post is my first post!
Other users could then be able to click a comment-link next to that activity-string (Could be called “Comment”). A 1 line textfield and submit-button would then fold out making the user able to comment on my specific activity:
“Great, you setup your blog”
Comments could also work nicely with the upcoming gallery. If pictures shows up as small thumbs in the stream, users would be able to comment on newly added pictures directly on the stream!
Or it could be used to comment on other users Status updates which is a part of BP as well. Lots of possibilities with this.
Now, I was thinking that every activity-string could have multiple comments from other users. Not just one comment.
This could be implemented to all activity streams (My Activity, Friends Activity and the Site Wide Activity).
The above would create alot more social activity and let people interact from within the social streams. Making social streams more then just informative.
My second ideer is to have a “hide button” on every activity-string giving the individual users the ability to hide the activity which their not interested in.
Any other suggestions or feedback to the above is very welcome!
