Migrate an existing site feed / microfeed list to a new teamsite
We have sites based on an old custom template. We are moving all contents to a new / default STS teamsite.
The only copy which is not working is the microfeed list.
3rd party tools can also not migrate this list.
Hey Peter, have you found a "best practise" for exporting and importing the feeds on prem to new teamsites. I have to migrate about 50 existing site coll feeds in the next 4 weeks :-(
Peter Gregg has a lot of good info. However, be careful of the dates and also embedded pics after the exporting of a site feed. Migrating sites to new site collections has become a nightmare for images.

You can export the Site Feed list from existing site and then import the list to the new site.
You can save the source site as site template with content. Then apply this template to the new site of the destination site collection.
