Activity Feed being empty with Claims Enabled Web Applications

I was having trouble aggregating my colleagues' activities into my news feed page. After searching for a solution on the internet, found out that i needed to do two things

  • Add colleagues 
  • Enable the "User - Activity Feed Job" because it was disabled for some reason.

Then when i went to the "My newsfeed" page, i found no feeds still. I didn't get the feeds in my "recent activities" either. After some investigations i found out that the "All Authenticated" users for the Claims provider that the Web Application is using must be added to have read permissions on the social data. You can do this by going to the User Profile Management page and then going to the "Manage User Permissions" page.

After doing this, and then re-running the job. The feeds appeared :)
