Verify that the Activity Feed Timer Job is enabled SharePoint 2010. You must have seen this error in Review problems and solutions" section of Central Administration of SharePoint Server 2010
 

Background


You must have seen this error in "Review problems and solutions" section of Central Administration of SharePoint Server 2010 so as I. So just thought of writing about the same and its resolution. Activity Feed lets users add feeds of events to their My Sites. Feeds might give information about activities of their Colleagues, such as updates to profile properties and creation of social tags and notes. Activity Feed does not enable tracking of activities that a user does not have permissions to see.

Problem


Activity Feed is off by default in a User Profile Service Application.


Solution


To turn on this feature, a member of the Farm Administrators group must configure the User Profile service Activity Feed timer job.
Health report

Before
  1. On the Central Administration Web site, on the Quick Launch, click Monitoring.
    Monitoring
  2. In the Timer Jobs section, click Review job definitions.
    Review job definitions
  3. Click User Profile Service - Activity Feed Job in the list of timer jobs.
    User Profile Service Application - Activity Feed Job
  4. On the Edit Timer Job page, click Enable.
    Edit Timer Job Page
And finally we see that the problem is solved

After

Conclusion


Users choose their Colleagues for their My Site by selecting names of other users and setting them as Colleagues. When a user is selected as a Colleague, a notification e-mail message is sent to the new Colleague.
