Only friend-only entries on the Friends page

Only friend-only entries on the Friends page

Short, concise description of the idea
Feature request allowing a user see only protected entries on their Friends page

Full description of the idea
Rather often it is needed to see only protected entries on the Friends page which can't be seen from a public source. This happens when a user uses a public place to read their Friend page but doesn't want to enter their password. Later when he or she is logged into their account again there is very disappointing and useless to reread the Friend page being afraid to miss a protected entry from their friend.
Another point I can see is that this is very convenient to read the entries of a friend like news or events using an external rss-reader. Sometimes this is more suitable than reading a Friends page, but then a problem appear when a person wants to read protected entries because the public posts have already beed read.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Ability to read the Friends page not being afraid of missing something or entering your password in the suspicious places
  • Being more convenient to use LiveJournal
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
