Friends page: view only posts with security level " Friends"

Title
Friends page: view only posts with security level " Friends"

Short, concise description of the idea
Implement a way to filter the friends view, so only locked posts (i.e. Security level "Friends") are displayed.

Full description of the idea
There are certain situations, when a user views his/her friends page without being logged in:

a. Using somebody else's machine for a quick glance.

b. Jealous partner is watching

c. etc..

When a user reads a friends page in this mode for some time (week or more) and the number of friends is high - it becomes impossible to locate "locked" posts. One need to rewind the friends page quite a lot to sort through all the "unlocked" posts which he/she already has read.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Better ability to find and read friends-only posts.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Not known at this point

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • The view can be implemented by designing a filter for the friends page in the following way:

    or
    http://www.livejournal.com/users/[name]/friends/[friend-group]?security=friends
