What is it?

The Activity Feed component allows you to display Activity Feed posts across a layout, page, or profile.

When do I use it?

The Activity Feed component can be added anywhere in a layout (however, adding it to the top cell is not recommended). The Activity Feed component is used to keep the users engaged with the current posts in a feed. It adds a dynamic element to layouts, pages, and profiles. You can view the posts on a layout, page, or profile without accessing the profile.
