The Home Stream is the section where you have the consolidated view of the activities in which you are a part of. All the activities in which you have participated by a comment, or in which you have been @mentioned or invited as a guest or individually shared with you appear in 'Streams to me'. All the posts you have added as favourite appears in the Favorites Tab and any post initiated by you in any form as a Status/ Task/ Note/ Event/ Bookmarks or an email shared by you appears in Streams by Me tab.
You can post private posts or individual messages/ tasks/ notes/ bookmarks or events from the Home section. If you select a group from the drop-down, the content will be posted in the Group Stream. Instead, if you just tag a particular person or a set of users to the post, it will be a private post between you and the respective users.
When you post a private post to others or share an email with others, all of them will appear under Streams by Me and will not be linked to any of the groups.
You can also do group mentions in a Stream private post. This option is helpful when you wish to share a private post with a group. To mention groups, go to a private post you have created, and in the comments section, you can mention any Stream group by typing @group-name.
Streams to Me is the consolidated view of the following:
- All posts in which you have added comments
- The posts in which you were @mentioned
- All emails shared with you
- Posts in which you are an Invitee

You can easily view the 'Unread' posts or the posts in which you were '@mentioned' by selecting the respective tabs.
