The activity feed lets you post messages to friends and share your latest exploits. Make a general post by heading to the Community tab and selecting Got something to share?, or comment on any of your friends’ achievements, screenshots, game clips, or broadcasts.
Adults can see screenshots, game clips, and broadcasts made by anyone else on Xbox Live. If that doesn't appeal to you, you can change this by going to Settings and selecting Account > Privacy & online safety > Xbox Live privacy > View details & customize > Game content.
Options under Game content include:
Choose Everybody, Friends, Only me, or Block to narrow whose comments and content you can see or allow to see.
Default settings for teens and kids are more restrictive, but they can be adjusted by an adult in the family.
For adults, anyone can view and comment on what's going on in your activity feed. Other things they can do:
Default settings for kids are more restrictive, but they can be adjusted by an adult in the family. For example, settings allow only a child’s friends to communicate with them. They can see other people’s content, but they need permission to add friends.
Teens have basically the same default settings as adults.
To change your activity feed preferences, update your privacy settings by going to Settings and selecting Account > Privacy & online safety > Xbox Live privacy > View details & customize > Communication & multiplayer.
Options under Communication & multiplayer include:
Choose Everybody, Friends, Only me, or Block to narrow who can see your feed and communicate with you.
A couple of settings will share achievements and game captures automatically to your activity feed. To check these, go to Settings > Preferences > Activity feed. Select Share achievements automatically for achievements and Share clips & screenshots automatically for game captures.
