What is Activity Stream?
An activity stream is a specific type of digital interface component that displays a list of recent activities. With the development of social media, the activity stream has become a common way of presenting this type of aggregated information to users.
The best example of an activity stream is a Facebook feed. In fact, the social media giant was instrumental in making the activity stream a universal part of the web. In a Facebook feed or other activity stream, the user receives a compiled list, usually on a single scrolling page, of various activities performed by other users or generated by other parties.
Now the flow of activity is common across all types of social media. With tools like the Stream API, developers can easily integrate activity streams into their projects and platforms. These resources make it easy to update the user according to what other users are doing on different platforms or what is happening elsewhere on the web.
