So many colliding streams, I’m nearly ready for social channel surfing.
I blogged earlier about the would address. I’ve friended about 500 people in . As I described in the earlier post, I’d like the ability to create, manage and publish to a variety of "friend populations" that I control. Not all friends are the same, nor do I want to share the same media and or content with all my friends - and frankly, many of them likely could care less about much of what I share. The current model sets up a lowest common denominator experience or shotgun approach when what I really want is to create and follow social channels.
So, not only would I like to be able to create and manage discreet channels of friends, I’d like to be able to toggle through and or subscribe differently to these different groups. For example, maybe I have one group I want mobile updates for what they are doing, but others I only want to view on-demand. Ok, this adds complexity and the use case may be at the margins today for how people are using FB, but it doesn’t seem that big a stretch for where this stuff needs to go.
Would love to know how others are handling this. Heck, maybe there’s a slick way to do this in FB today and I just don’t know it! Fill me in, quick!
