Comment (by boonebgorges):

 > Changing the 'just-me' scope to add in activity that wasn't created by
 that user does not sound like the right way to go about this.

 This makes sense at a glance, but the more I think about it, the more I
 think that it's sort of an artificial way of delineating "just-me". "just-
 me" and the other preset scopes are shorthands that we use to populate
 specific activity filter tabs. When I look at "my" activity, I want to see
 activity related to stuff that directly involves me. I don't care whether
 my used ID is in the 'user_id' column of the database table. Put this way,
 it makes sense that a single friendship_created activity item would show
 up in my stream even if I were 'item_id'.

 By going with the single activity item, we avoid a bunch of syncing and
 visibility problems, as described through this ticket. If we can solve
 these problems in one fell swoop, by combining the duplicate items into a
 single item, and the only "price" we pay is to change just-me, I think we
 should do it. I'd be happy to hear arguments to the contrary, though.
