I have a mysites application running.  I added colleagues between users.  I expect to be able to go to a different users tags and notes area and see their tags and notes.  I also expect that I can go to my newsfeed and see my colleagues tags and notes.

If I am logged in as an admin account, I can see another users tags and notes.  If I am not logged in as an admin account, I can see if they tagged the page myNewsfeed, but no other tags on other site collections.  I can see the tag in the tag cloud, but not in the Activities area.

It appears to be a permissions issue, but I am not sure where the permissions are lacking.

First, did you enable the activity newsfeed timer job?

Yes, I can get newsfeeds to show up, but only if the user tags the page mynewsfeed page, which is at the root of my mysites  http://people.com/default.aspx.  If I try to tag another page, or another site collection, it will not show up unless I login as an admin.

So I can tag/view tags on the page mynewsfeeds for everyone.  I can tag/view tags for everyone as long as I am viewing with an admin account.  I can't view public tags as a non-admin account unless the tag was on the page mynewsfeeds (they do show up in the tag cloud though).
