It´s surprising how little variation there is today on activity feeds, everybody seems to copy FB.

What I´m trying find is alternative forms of visualisation of activity feeds, ones that use more spread forms than the typical "list" design.

Feeds could use some clustering, e.g. by persons close to you or by topic, something not done by most feed styles today (or at least not visualized).

One of the more noticeable attempts I found so far is Google+ Ripples.

So, what´s the most interesting ways of displaying fullscreen activity feeds besides the well-known FB style you came across?

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, visit the help center for guidance.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Hi @thomasf1 but questions soliciting discussions aren't really appropriate for this site. As per the faq: You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page this question is a bit too open-ended. Requesting lists of examples aren't questions that can have a specific answer. I'll have to close the question to prevent spam answers, but you can edit it to ask a more precise query and we'll re-open for you. – JonW Mar 19 '12 at 9:14
Hi Jon, there seems no way contacting you directly... I´ve tried in my last question... I thought the question for examples of great ways to do it should be specific enough. – thomasf1 Mar 19 '12 at 9:23
A list of examples isn't an answer. How would you mark one of the answers as 'Correct'? There is no right answer to those questions. A post was made on Meta recently to see if the community thought we should close off any questions asking for examples and the consensus was that we should. There is also the link about what makes a good question that goes into more detail. – JonW Mar 19 '12 at 9:36
Where would you ask such a question instead? Could you recommend another service/forum for exchanging ideas that may lead to a discussion? – thomasf1 Mar 19 '12 at 10:21
