Automatic friend re-adding
Short, concise description of the idea
When de-friending somebody, have the ability to automatically re-friend them after a certain time.
Full description of the idea
Sometimes users post something that is unpleasant for a small number of their friends, for example a picture of a dog would unintentionally make a dog-phobic friend uncomfortable every time they read their friends page. This can be got around by reclassifying the friend or removing them from one's friends list until that particular post has passed a reasonable number of friends pages. A better way of doing this would be to give an opportunity to restore the friend to their former status after a certain mark has been reached, for example "in 3 days" or "once this post has reached skip=200". If this time restore option is selected the friend could be informed by email that this has taken place and when the change will be reversed.
- -More convenient method of achieving what user wants (stay friends but do not want to see this post) without offending friend by forgetting to add them back
- Can't think of any, I'm sure other people can!
