  1. Add birthdays to the activity feed

    Wouldn't it be awesome to get on xbox and your feed showed you who's birthday is today on your friends list if they so choose to have it shown? Maybe even add a feature where you can send them a xbox gift card or game?

  2. Add a Dislike Button to The Activity Feed

    I think it would be really helpful with a dislike button for posts, Video Clips and Screenshots so we can voice our opinions without commenting because we voice our opinion and they end up blocking us and deleting our comment and i thought it would be helpful with a dislike button probably in shape of a broken heart or thumbs down

  3. Xbox Live Social Network

    A social network of Xbox Live, like a Miiverse, that would be great and fun. Besides the interaction between users, posting images and videos would be gladly, in addition to be a great attraction to head-to-head with the competition. :)

  6. Please remove suggested friends and random posts on activity feed

    Removal or option to turn off suggested friends and random posts on activity feed. It's supposed to be a personal co sole experience so I cannot understand why you would want these options switched on to flood your dash

  7. Filter/Sort Activity Feed (Status Updates, Clips, Achievements, etc.)

    Similar to how on your friends list you can "change view", it'd be great to have the ability to sort your activity feed by the following categories:
    -Status Updates
    -Clips
    -Achievements
    -and other things that may get posted to the activity feed.

    Sometimes I like to scroll through it only reading people's status updates, and other times I'm really looking for new clips.

    Additionally, filtering by favorites and all friends would be cool too.

  8. Clicking on a game in the Friends Tab should open the Game Hub

    I would really like to see a change to the Friends Tab on Xbox One.

    There is currently a section in the Friends Tab that show what games my friends are playing and it's a pretty nice feature but it would nice if it actually opened the game hub of a game instead of opening the game in the Store. This would add a lot more use to the section and make it easier to see all friends who are playing that game instead of only a few of them.

  9. Tell us which friends have viewed our clips

    When you get a view on one of your game clips it would be nice to see which friends have viewed the clip. Show us which gamertags have viewed our game DVR clips

  10. Have something posted on the activity feed when you 100% a game

    Getting 100% on a game can be really difficult and I would like something more to show for it. Also give us the option that after it is posted to be able to pin it to our showcase,

  11. "Smart Tag" gamers in clips

    "Xbox record that!" Wouldn't it be awesome if it automatically recognized the specific gamertags in the clip and tags them to the video? This "Smart Tag" system would save other friends' time who don't care for clips unless it's relevant to them. But more importantly, we've all had a time in a game where something happened to us and became instantly mortified at the thought of others recording it. Now we would have a chance to know if it actually was recorded and laugh at the embarrassment or marvel at their feat! It could show up on other gamer's activity…
