Post without title in activity stream

If post is untitled, there is blank in activity stream.
I think, it will be better to make default post title in activity stream like "Untitled post".

I think the standard method of handling this situation is to use the post id (e.g. "Post XX" ).

Both of the proffered solutions - 'Untitled Post' and 'Post ##' - seem inelegant to me. Think about how WP itself handles this issue. When you don't provide a title for a post, the theme will simply show nothing. I'd say this is generally the right behavior; when an author doesn't provide a title, it's usually a conscious choice. Imposing a title in the activity stream seems like it disregards this choice.

If you don't like this default behavior, you can attach a filter to bp_blogs_activity_new_post_action. Check out bp_blogs_record_post() in bp-blogs.php to see what you'd be filtering.
