Build scalable activity feeds in hours instead of months. Scale your activity feed without the notorious difficulties involved with building activity feeds on traditional databases.
Popular examples of activity feeds are Twitter, Instagram, Spotify and Salesforce Chatter. Basically any use case where you can follow things or otherwise personalize the user experience is typically a good fit for Stream. Save vital development resources and enable your team to focus on what makes your app unique.
Building out feed technology is quite a challenge. We made the mistake of trying to build it ourselves… and we were just stuck. From a feature perspective, we couldn’t build something as robust as what Stream can provide. I’m simply amazed at how certain features, such as ranking, work.Dubsmash
Following various feeds is the core aspect of feeds. Stream enables your users to follow other users or any topic. Common examples of what your users can follow include topics, playlists, companies, groups, stocks, artists, playlists etc.
Feeds are chronological by default. You can fully customize the order using ranking methods. Common use cases include showing editorial content higher in the feed, highlighting current events or showing popular content higher in the feed.
Aggregation enables you to reduce noise in the feed. If a friend is bored one day and posts 100 things it can easily flood a traditional news feed. Aggregated feeds group related activities.
Listen to your feed and update your UI whenever something changes. This encourages real time conversations between people and facilitates event/hashtag related discussions.
Follow suggestions, content and product recommendations, feed order based on individual user interest, and discovery feeds are all available on enterprise plans. Stream assigns a data scientist to your account and that person builds a custom solution for your exact use case.
Stream runs across 180+ servers worldwide with an average API response time of 12ms. Average real-time response time is 2ms.
Implement Stream according to your specifications and design. Start out with a basic chronological feed, ranked feed or even in-depth machine learning personalization.
Activity feeds help you fuel growth, drive engagement and increase retention. Leverage Stream’s robust developer API to launch this week and not next year.
