Limited user profile visibility by security levels

Limited user profile visibility by security levels

Short, concise description of the idea
This would give control over who can view parts of my user profile.

Full description of the idea
I would like to be able to limit the amount of information that is available to people on my profile if they are not friends(or in a certain friends group).

The idea is that you could have a "teaser" public profile and then a more detailed profile for people you actually friend. There are two similiar solutions available at the moment, a future dated entry which makes editting entries a pain as the future dated entry always comes up first or a link on the profile to a friends locked entry.

It would also allow me to limit contact info on my profile, so it open to set groups of friends.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Benefits are more control over what is in public domain.
    Provides new friends with a useful overview of person, rather than doing what I have to do a drawl back through dozens of entries or not realising for months someone is married, etc.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Increased complexity in creating user profile.
