When I tried to use the News Feed Feature in SharePoint 2013, it thrown exception:
The below is the screenshot:Solution:
As I mentioned in the earlier post about Micro blogging in SharePoint 2013, news feeds are related to User Profile Service.
Hence, we have to check two things which are related to User Profile Service in SharePoint 2013.
1. Check whether AppFabric Caching service is running with the service account which has elevated permissions.
2. Next, check the account which is running the User Profile Service application:
Open Central Administration -> Mange Service Applications -> User Profile S Service is started and also check the permissions for the service
Click on the User Profile service and in the permission section in the ribbon check whether the service account running this service has full control.
If all the above scenarios are properly configured in SharePoint farm, then the news feed will work properly as expected.
