I have a VF page which uses standard controller (custom object). Basically I am overriding view action for a custom object. Now I have a section on this page which I want to show only if chatter is enabled for this object. Is there any way to check that? Any thought?

Enable or check Chatter Feed Tracking programatically

Read through this earlier discussions and also the schemadescribe call

IsFeedenabled method for each object will tell you whether chatter is enabled or not for the object

can't we detect on VF page itself? – doga Jan 9 '13 at 10:47

See Describe API - the isFeedEnabled method is what you're looking for. You'll need to put the logic in a custom controller extension, but it will only be a few lines.
