Replace your current cronjob for BuddyStream by the new one (see settings -> cronjob)
The old one is broken.
Having problems mail me at:

BuddyStream is a BuddyPress plugin that will synchronize all of your favorite Social Networks to the BuddyPress activity stream.

The plugin setup can be hard but tried to keep it easy, operate, and for your members to use.
Each Social Network has its own admin panel where you can see which users are using the network, view cool statistics, and manage the advanced filtering settings.

Networks that the plugin currently supports:

  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • Flickr
  • Youtube
  • Location

– PHP 5.2.1+
– CRONJOB access

If I could give this software a zero, I would. It does not function as advertised. When I purchased the “latest” version (MarcoPolo 3.0) Facebook integration was broken and it took several weeks of writing to the author with no response before I finally got an answer and then several more weeks before a new version was released. And still the software didn’t work. Add to that, that when I bought the software, and had an issue with PayPal payment, I got an immediate response. DO NOT USE this software at all.

In principle this plugin is a great idea. But it doesn’t work! I purchased the premium plugin but it broke CSS in the side widget and left the Foursquare icon in the activity stream event after I had turned off the Foursquare module. It also doesn’t work either with the BuddyPress Activity Plus plugin. What was really annoying was the non response from the developers after I tried to sort out the issue with them. I was even prepared to stump up some money to provide additional functionality. Even though they promise a 48 hour response on the premium plugin I was still waiting for a response weeks later. In the end, I had to raise a grievance through PayPal and they have now refunded my money. VERY DISAPPOINTED AND A LESSON LEARNT – ALWAYS READ THE REVIEWS!
