View subscriptions on friends list

View subscriptions on friends list

Short, concise description of the idea
Provide option whereby subscriptions are included in friends list.

Full description of the idea
When a user sets up a subscription to a journal or community (or a tag thereof), they would have the option of including the relevant posts in their friends list, instead of receiving email notifications.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Users can effectively friend a subset of an LJ, a kind of partial friending.
  • Fewer email notifications.
  • Centralisation of posts.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Makes friending less transparent (although this is already the case, given that subscriptions exist at all).
Tags: friends page, notifications, watch-trust-friend, § no status
  • Post a new comment
