What’s this?

The Recent Activity page shows what your friends are doing on

Why should I use this?

Seeing your friends’ recent activity can help you discover content on the site that you may never have found on your own. Since your friends probably have similar interests to you, the chances of discovering new content that interests you are good.

What kind of activity can I see?

You can see when they add or update photos to Husker Locker, add a video, write a new blog entry, post a comment somewhere on Husker Locker, add something to their favorites, make a new friend, or join a group.

How much activity can I see?

You can only see the last three days worth of activity, so log in and check for recent activity often.

What about privacy?

The activity feed always uses Husker Locker screen names and never reveals full names. Also, it does not show “private” activity such as private messages sent on Husker Locker, or activity when you leave groups, remove friends, etc. In addition, if you block a user on Husker Locker, you will not see their activity on your feed and they will not see your activity on their feed. (If they are not on your friends list, you won’t see each other’s activity in the first place.)

Disabling your recent activity

You can prevent your activities from being seen by others by disabling your recent activity on the edit account page.

Placing a check next to “hide activities from friends” prevents your recent activity from showing up to your friends.

How are tags used?

Tags are used to relate content. For instance, if you view a photo and you click on it’s tag called “home game”, you will be shown all the photos that have been tagged “home game”. Tags are also used to generate the tag clouds on the site, which show the most popular tags.
