Your activity stream houses the connection streams (and custom streams) and other trending content within the Canvas Community. It also includes the content you are following in the community.
Go to your news feed (aka activity stream)
Type http://community.canvasLMS.com/news in your browser.
You will see a list of your connections streams, top & trending activity, and most recent activity.
By default, all content you follow in the community will be part of the Following stream. However, you can create your own streams (you can have up to 10 streams). And each stream can be customized with its own notification options. Click on How do I set my user preferences in the Community? to customize notifications for streams.
