Introduction to the Latest Activity Feature

We upgraded our Latest Activity feed on the home page to make it more interactive.

What’s new?

  • You can now post status updates directly from the home page.
  • Comment and “Like” photos, videos, blogs, or status updates while on the home page.
  • Larger photo thumbnails!
  • Play videos directly on the home page.

It's now even easier to see what's going on and for everyone to participate. Here’s more:


The Latest Activity feature is a stream of up-to-the-minute activity across instouch. It shows off what's happening on instouch, from new photos that have been uploaded to new friendships that have been confirmed. Members can update their status on the Main Page, comment on content, "Like" content and even view content, all from within the Latest Activity feed.


To post a Status Update, click on the status box and type your message there. instouch allows you to share with Twitter and Facebook, so you can check the box next to these icons and share your update with your other channels.


Please note that if you have set your Profile Page to be visible only to friends/contacts, you will still be able to update your status on the Main Page, but your status will only display on your My Profile page. This may look like your status update has disappeared, but going to your My Profile will verify that it hasn't.


To comment on an item in the Latest Activity feed, click on the comment icon to open up a text box.


For Photos and Videos, clicking on this icon will open up a text box within the Activity feed. Enter your comment, and click on the "Share" button to save your comment. For Groups, Discussions, Events and Blog Posts, clicking on the comment icon will direct you to the content detail page first, so that you can read more before adding your comment. For multiple media items uploaded at one time from one member, clicking on the item will direct you to the detail page, where you can then add your comment.


To view comments on an item in the Latest Activity feed, click on the "# Comments" link beneath the item to see the comments open up inline. Comments on items and profiles will display the text of these comments within the Latest Activity feed directly.


You can also "Like" an item in the Latest Activity feed, as well as view how many people like an item.


The Latest Activity feature appears as a stream on the Main Page of instouch, and also on every member's My Profile page. Members can choose which items appear in their My Profile page Latest Activity feeds (go to tab: My Profile: My Profile Settings: Privacy) and also delete individual entries you have created.
