11 Suggestions for (Social) Networking Heaven – 6
6) Level of access
I get frustrated with this one. Someone wants me to add them and I have to decide if they get to see the limited profile or the full information. And suppose I get closer, I don’t usually remember to “promote” them.
If (social) networks implemented connection types as proposed in item 1 above, then I’d like to say, “OK this person is a blog reader” and then automatically set the settings for what they see with me. This sounds like the same as #1 but its not.
Right now on facebook, you say two things 1) How you know a person and 2) What level of access do they have to your account, limited or full. For me, I’d like Question #1 to determine #2 and I want it to be the same for everyone so I can be consistent. I don’t want mistakes. My family’s safety depends on it.
