@r-a-y Thanks for the clarification. Do you know why it was decided to implement it this way?

It feels very counter intuitive that you’re able to post replies into the user activity stream, but to post a direct message into the activity stream you have to use a completely different component (which is disabled by default) to have your message show up in the user activity stream in a roundabout way. And to add even more confusion, posting messages directly to the site wide activity stream conversely is possible without having to use any tricks.

I don’t mean to sound harsh, because I love buddypress and it’s an amazing piece of software, but it does feel like it’s a bit counter intuitive and inconsistent in this specific instance.
