The module lets users comment on any piece of content on your site OR in a remote site.
In the Widget mode, you can define an external JomSocial community to load the activity from.
--- Which is the difference between the local Module and the Widget configuration? ---
The module and JomSocial social network are local in your site. You can show your local social network activity in the rest of the site pages.
In the widget configuration, the module acts as a widget in your site, JomSocial is in a remote site. You can show the social network activity in any number of sites. Eg In a personal blog, or associated partners.

The magic works in this way, the module loads JomSocial to extract the Activity Stream.
To customize the stream, new views are added to the default JomSocial template.
