We are using Sharepoint 2013 and when we upload a document and go into its Tags and Notes, we add a keyword: awesome. I can then click on the tag, go to its profile page, and select 'Follow' so that it appears in my profiles Interests box. I can go back and create another document and tag it with the same tag, but I don't see anything come through the newsfeed about a document being uploaded with that tag. Is that not how following a tag profile should work? Likewise, I post comments to a tag profile and I don't see anything come through on my newsfeed about me posting a comment. How would a user know to view this tag profile's information if not for the newsfeed?
Here's a screenshot of the tag profile page. Two documents have been added to the keyword but nothing shows up:
You can see that comments work just fine, but nothing appears under the tagged items. In my newsfeed, I see my comments, but nothing about the documents being added to the library using that keyword show up.
EDIT I have continued looking into this and found that if I click the last 60 days, the documents show up. After digging around on the internet, this makes sense. Doing a 60 day query is doing a hard object lookup. Using the All query uses search 100%. So somewhere along the way, Sharepoint is not crawling Tag Profiles. I have a content source set up in Search Administration with one URL of sps3://my.sharepoint.domain . Are there any other URLs that I can add to force the crawl of tag profiles?
Further EDIT After ripping out the search application and reinstalling and waiting a couple days for everything to be indexed, items appear in the Tag Profile page but don't appear in the newsfeed. After some googling, tags & notes do not appear in the newsfeed. Only social tags do.
