I know its nothing new. I've been seeing others complain about the "friends" security model all the years I've been here. It really is a nice warm fuzzy thought that everyone is everyones friends - but most of us are 'followers', or 'interested parties' or ... whatever.

Why can't we have something in-between open and friends? Why can't there be a support for acknowledging those that 'follow' someone because they find them interesting, their public posts intriguing etc. and would allow a two way 'linking' of following status, but not automatically get access to those things we only want to share with our friends?

That's the model I'd like to see. Yes, I can 'sort of' do that with Tags and groups, but the management of groups blows. There is no way I can go in and "re-flag" all those messages I've set to 'Sex' or 'Alaska' or 'Family' to something else if I decide to re-organize, or change my mind about who I want to see what part of my life.

Guess I'd be happy with Groups if there was better management tools. And no - I'm not enough of a programmer to make my own.


Okay ..rant off.
