Text-only friends lists

Text-only friends lists

Short, concise description of the idea
There should be an option to read friends list in text-only format.

Full description of the idea
Many of us read our friends lists during work or school. Images not only call attention to what we are reading (and even on your lunch break, you don't want nosey coworkers reading over your shoulder because they spotted a cat macro), but can cause some systems to run slower. As a benefit to those of us in a public area, or with slow internet connections, it would be useful to have an option to view at least our friends lists without any images, including layout customization and userpics.

An ordered list of benefits
  • privacy
  • ease of use
  • accommodations for those with slower internet connections or older computers
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Missing parts of entries
  • Having to switch between different view options
  • Only offered to users with certain types of accounts
