What does "Recent activity" show?
Recent activity A shows what is happening around your account.
Save C makes that view your default so it will be the first thing you see in Recent activity. This no longer applies to your Home Page.
In response to member feedback we have also added the ability to mute B items that you don't want to see new activity on.
How can I tell when people leave comments?
When someone leaves a comment, you can see it on your home page. You can also get to the recent activity page using the "You" menu at the top of the page.
If you aren't seeing comments on your photos, make sure that you have a view saved that shows activity on your photos.
Where can I keep up on activity on my apps?
Currently activity on app pages doesn't show in your recent activity feed. The best place to check for new activity is Apps By You where you can see the number of comments and faves for each app. We know that this isn't optimal and we will be adding a better way to track activity in a future release.
How do I find out if my photo or video has been added to a gallery?
The first time someone adds one of your photos or videos to a gallery we'll send you an email letting you know and introducing you to galleries.
You can always see how other Flickr members are including your content in their galleries, just check the Galleries With Your Photos link from your Galleries page.
What if I don't want to see activity on a photo?
On your home page:
To mute activity around a particular photo on your home page, hover your cursor over the photo and a mute option will appear in the right hand corner of the activity item.
On your Activity page:
If there is an image that you commented on a while ago but don't want to see new activity on, you can now mute it . (you can do this on anything in recent activity)
To un-mute something, just go to your muted items view and un-mute it.
What’s the difference between my new home page and my recent activity feed?
Your new home page is a snazzier version of the Activity page and will show you almost everything you’re used to seeing there, along with recent uploads from your contacts. With each new activity item, your home page will display a beautiful story card with a timestamp of when it happened. You can also fave and comment on all the photos right there in your home page feed.
To get back to your home page from anywhere on the site, simply click on Flickr logo in the top left of the page.
Over on your Activity page, you’ll have a little more control over exactly which items appear, if customization is your thing. Just click the “Custom view” link in the top right of the page and deselect the activity items you don’t want to see.
If I sign up for activity notification by email, will I get an email for each and every comment/fave/note added to my photos?
Nope. We don't want to bring the wrath of the email gods down upon our heads and we're batching immediate activity. You'll receive no more than 3 emails an hour for either recent photostream activity or your contacts uploads.
