+Server Object Model and exposed web service implementation (asmx) has been disabled as by design for SharePoint Online.

+NewsFeed feature and webparts can be suggested for replacement which is fully supported for new SharePoint 2013 programming model and APIs

“SharePoint 2013 includes new client APIs that you can use to work with social feeds, follow people and content, and retrieve user properties in online, on-premises, and mobile development. When possible, you should use client APIs for SharePoint 2013 development instead of using the server object model or web services. Client APIs include managed client object models, a JavaScript object model, and a Representational State Transfer (REST) service. If you are developing an app for SharePoint, you must use a client API.”
