Visualforce Page for Article Question

So i have two main questions in regards to creating a Vf page for Articles:

1. Is it possible to get the View Count for the articles in VF Page?

2. Is it possible to add Chatter Feeds into a Article?

Sonam thanks for your input.

1. I was able to find the KnowledgeArticleView Stat document that allows to pull the view count for articles.

Article object : KnowledgeArticle doesn't have a parameter with which you can determine the number of views for that article but you can definitely use CaseAssociationCount to determins which all cases was an article associated to:

If you want to follow knowledge articles in Chatter feeds:

Click Your Name | Setup | Customize | Chatter | Feed Tracking.
Select an article type. Each article type appears by name in the Object list. For example, if your organization has three article types named Offer, FAQ, and Warranty, all three appear alphabetically in the Objects list.
Select Enable Feed Tracking, then click Save when you're done with the page.
 
Hope this helps!
