In release 8.5, you can now target a group or the entire community when posting a status message.
The Activity Story Stream provides a compilation of status messages, application activities (such as blog posts), media previews, and comments. Hashtags and mentions can be used in status messages and comments.
You can post a status message on the "New" tab (such as on the site home page or a group home page).
Status display depends upon context. For example, if you post your status in a group, that status will get picked up on the site level and group level Activity Story Stream. But if you post status on the site home page, that post won't get picked up on the Group Activity Story Stream. Even if you mention a group from a site Activity Story Stream, that mention will not appear in the Group Activity Story Stream. (It will be listed under the group mentions list on the navigation bar.)
