Activity stream is the centralized place for users to see everything that is going on in the community.
It can be set as a home page for your site by going in to WP Admin -> Settings -> Reading and selecting the static page, then choosing Activity stream page as a home page.
This setting will change the home page of your site and display the activity stream for users that are landing to your top level domain (ex. www.domain.com)
All of the items posted in activity stream respect the privacy option attached to them.
For example, if someone post something that is visible only to their friends, users who are not friends with the poster will not see that content.
Activity stream is divided in three (3) areas
Postbox is the most commonly used feature of the community as it allows users to post content.
It also allows selecting the privacy for the posted item, choosing a mood that will be displayed in stream item, or scheduling posts for the later date.
