 I'm tempted to say that this is plugin territory, for the following
 reason. It'd be simple to add an activity item that says "Sally has
 updated her profile" with a link to the profile, but that information is
 not really all that interesting unless you know which part of the profile
 Sally has changed. So what you really need is a more sophisticated
 activity item for xprofile, one that says "Sally changed her Gender from
 Male to Female" or at least "Sally has changed her Gender". But then I
 think that it would be nice for the activity items (like Facebook) to be
 formatted and phrased specifically based on the kind of profile item that
 was changed. Moreover, you'd want individuals (or at least admins) to have
 control over which profile fields produce activity updates, since some of
 the items might be more sensitive than others.

 So I think that this is a complicated issue, and is probably best handled
 in a plugin that can be more responsive to these kinds of things (and
 ideally create a slick admin UI for setting it up). I'd like a second
 opinion about that, though.
