Hover over lock icon on locked post to see information about security

Short, concise description of the idea
It would be nice to be able to hover over the lock and see what kind of security I put on that post.

Full description of the idea
My journal is friends-only, so almost every post has that little lock icon. But some of my posts are locked to something other than "friends." It's impossible to tell which group I locked it to without editing the post.

A great place to put this information would be in the 'onmouseover' (hover) of the lock icon. Alternatively, adding something like "Security: Locked. Groups: Everybody But Mom" to the bottom of the post would work.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Users can tell at a glance/mouse-hover what groups can see their posts without having to edit them.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • This would likely slow down the page rendering time at least somewhat.
  • Increased database access.
