Not a solution for friends-only activity feed
By , for WP 3.8.1

If you're looking for a solution for the common problem of trying to set up buddypress so the activity feed only includes friends and your own activities, this is NOT it. It lacks this functionality in two areas:

1) Privacy in that plugin is set when POSTING, not when VIEWING. That means that if some random person decides to post an update to everyone then I see it in my feed even if I am not friends with them.

2) It only works for select actions, such as posting an update. Things like changing profile picture or adding a new friend can not have their privacy changed with the plugin which means they will show up in everyone’s feed, friend or not. Not really very private...
