Friends-Only option for Friends Filters

Friends-Only option for Friends Filters

Short, concise description of the idea
Adding a "Friends-Only" option to the options for Public or Private custom friends groups.

Full description of the idea
Currently you can choose to make a Custom Friends Group either Public or Private. However, for a Friends-Only journal, this would mean either the friends page is going to be public, unlike the journal entries, or the friends page will be only private. (For instance, I locked up my journal because someone was pestering me, and I made my friends page private so that this person would not then start to pester my friends, or try to continue pestering me through other journals) So it'd be a huge advantage to be able to add the same level of security to a Friends filter as you can put on a journal entry, or an entire journal.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Friends-Only journal users would be able to apply the same security level to who can view their Friends pages, which would be a major advantage when the point of locking a journal is because someone is exhibiting stalker-like behavior.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Only drawback I can see is that an additional option on the Custom Friends Groups page might cause a little confusion, but it shouldn't be much.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Add a button to the Edit Custom Friends Groups page.
  • Code added to the /friends/ page code which detects whether a filter is "public" or "private"
