Notification when a post changes from Private to Friends Only or Public

Title
Notification when a post changes from Private to Friends Only or Public

Short, concise description of the idea
When a post have been Private and becomes public or visible to Friends only, LJ ought to send a notification to those able to view the post

Full description of the idea
When a new post is posted, people, who are able to view the post in regards to the security level setting, will be notified about the post.

Even though LJ frequently saves the post automatically while it is being written, it is not possible to save a draft. To postpone writing a certain post for a while before submitting the post, it is necessary to save it as Private, and then change the security level when done writing it.

When the post is visible to others, it would be neat if they could be notifies about the post, especially when the post is out of date and therefore not likely to appear in the front list (the first page os posts in Friend's posts (by clicking "Friends" in the menu)).

An ordered list of benefits
  • People will be notified about posts, changing security level from Private to Friends/Everyone/Custom, likewise new posts, with regards to the security level.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • There will likely be some drawbacks, but I don't see any
