The activity stream shows the connection streams, including custom streams, and other trending content within the Canvas Community. It also includes the content you are following in the community.

By default, all content you follow in the community will be part of the Following stream. However, you can create up to 10 of your own streams. Each stream can be customized with its own notification options.

Your custom streams list will always appear as an option in your list of streams when you want to follow people, places, or content in the community.
