Activity Streams is an open format specification for activity stream protocols, which are used to syndicate activities taken in social web applications and services, similar to those in Facebook[1]'s Newsfeed, FriendFeed, the Movable Type Action Streams plugin, etc.

Implementors of the activity Activity Streams draft include Facebook[2] and MySpace[3] as producers and Windows Live[4] as a consumer.

The largest open source library (based on watchers) is Stream Framework. In addition there is a trend of SOA (service-oriented architecture) where third parties power this type of functionality.
