Activity feeds are a feature in Scratch that shows the activity of people a user is following. There is one on the Front Page when logged in, called "What's Happening?", and on a user's Profile Page, called "What I've been doing", shown to everyone, including non-Scratchers.

What's Happening?

Main article: What's Happening?
The What's Happening? section on the front page.

The What's Happening? section is viewable on the Front Page to logged in users. It shows what people they follow have been doing.

If the user has not followed anyone yet, a message appears instead that says, "This is where you will see updates from Scratchers you follow - Check out some Scratchers you might like to follow".

What I've been Doing

The What I've been doing section on a user's page.

The What I've been doing section is on the right side of a Scratcher's Profile Page, next to the About me and What I'm working on sections. It shows what the user has been doing. The activity in the What I've been doing box disappears at a different rate, depending on how active the user is. For example, the activity of users who commonly love or favorite projects will disappear quite quickly, however for less active users, it could take many months, or even years for activity to disappear.[citation needed]

There used to be a bug where posting in the forums caused all activity in this section to disappear. It is not known what caused that bug.[1]

Activity Recorded

The following activity is recorded and shown. In each section, a maximum of 5 recent items is enforced.

Note Note: The syntax "[user]" means a username, with a link only on What's Happening; "<something>" means the title, with a link.

Below each item is how long ago it happened, in gray and a smaller font. On the left of each item is an icon. In the What's Happening section, it is the user's icon. In the What I've been doing section, it is an icon about the action.

Prank Studios

There are some studios, with titles like 'you home'. If one follows one of these studios, in their followers' "What's Happening?", it will say something like <username> is now following you home,[2] which some people find funny.
