The recent updates area of a person's profile displays their latest status messages, helping you to keep up with what the person is doing, what they are working on, and how busy they are. You can go to people's profile pages and quickly scan listed posts to see a summary of their latest updates and updates of contacts whom they follow. The profile owner and other users can post comments in response to any update entries or messages.
This area also displays an update message when the profile owner, or someone the profile owner follows, performs various tasks such as creating a new blog, posting a blog entry, or commenting on a blog entry.
Your administrator can choose whether to enable or disable this feature for users in your organization. By default, it is enabled. The administrator can also configure settings to control who can post messages. For example, the administrator might choose to limit access so that only the people in a user's network can post comments to that user's message board.
