We have a recent activity widget on the main overview page. There are times when this is dominated by truly social comments; favorite movie, songs that give you goosebumps, etc. I am finding that most of these social posts don't happen in a space or a group, just "in Sam Smiths polls/discussions".
Is there a way to configure the recent activity widget to only show content that comes from a group or a space?
So you are looking for an option to "exclude personal content" option? If there is a way to do it, I suspect it would be by creating a custom widget. You might try asking the question in the Developer space for input.
