How to test:

1. Create a page as an admin and share it with registered users
2. Create a user as an admin
3. Log in as the created user
4. Put the "shared page created by admin in step 1" on the user's watchlist
5. Edit the "watched pages block" for the user you have logged in as
6. Select "Activities of my friends" for "List type show" on the edit screen
7. Click on the additional filters and settings and do the following:
8. Select "All activities from "Filter by activity type" drop down menu, select "a time period" from "Filter by time", select "Activity type" from the "Order by" drop down menu and save.
9. Log in as admin again and make some changes to some page created earlier
10. Log back in as the user --> on the dashboard user should see an "update by admin" in the "Latest changes I can view" block
11. Repeat "step 5 as the user" and select "Pages on my watchlist" from the edit screen then save.
12. Repeat "step 9 as admin" and make changes to the shared page created earlier
13. Log in as the user --> on the "watched pages block" there should be "an update and date" by the admin
14. User should see the inbox updated with a message --> clicking on it displays activities taken on the page.

"Page1" activities from watched pages.

Gregor and I had a chat today and I found out a bit more:

- When you select the activity of your friends, their pages don't need to be on the watchlist.
- Normally watched pages run on a cron job, but the friend activity doesn't and should update the block immediately.
- Friend activity doesn't generate notifications.
- "Friend activity" means "Shared with me as a friend", i.e. by being on the "Friend" list but it can also be for pages updated when they are just shared with me personally and me being on the list of friends.
