In this drupal video tutorial, we look at how to create an activity feed for your site just like facebook. To do so, we need the Activity, Token, Trigger and Views modules. After installing these modules, I demonstrate how to configure the Activity module so that when a user logs in, out or registers for the site, the site's activity feed is updated.
To conclude the tutorial, I show you the basic step of making your activity feed your actual home page. In tutorial 2 of 2, I'll show you how to create custom Activity events so that if you have a custom trigger on your site, it can show up on the activity feed.
As an aside, I just found out that Mustardseed Media has released a premium video tutorial on creating social websites which may take some of this information further. I haven't seen Bob's tutorial but his stuff is extremely helpful and informative so I would recommend you check out his site at http://mustardseedmedia.com/podcast
