An activity feed is thepart of a community, social media platform, or mobile app that shows a collection of recent interactions. It brings all relevant activity into a central location, making it much easier for users to view the app’s content.
The exact content shown in the activity feed depends on the community, but it will typically include questions, announcements, comments, links, and media. The content will usually be related to the specific user or the group they are viewing.
Activity feeds may show all types of community activity or only top-level posts. For example, while Reddit, Instagram, and Strava only highlight new posts, social networks like Facebook and Twitter also show likes, replies, and shares.
