Settings that Social Networks Might Have
- I am interested in what you are doing and would like to share what I am doing with you.
- I know who you are, but you don't know or care who I am. However, I would like to know what you are up to. (The setting for collecting celebrity news and companies' loyalty discounts.)
- Apparently you find me interesting. Here, look at something/nothing/everything.
- I don't mind you using my profile on the social networking site to find my phone number, but I have zero interest in what you had for breakfast.
- You are the math nerds who I know, so I want to tell you about math; you are the knitting nerds I know, so I want to tell you about yarn. Other people can hunt this information down if they want to.
- You are the math nerds who I know, so I want to tell you about math; you are the knitting nerds I know, so I want to tell you about yarn. Other people would run in horror from sheaf cohomology or from knowing how much I paid for that yarn. This must be kept from them. (Unless you take a screen shot and betray my wishes.)
- The Very Special Constituents. The People You Should Not Be Talking To.
- I have a question. I have an announcement. I want to spam this out to invade on my friends' experience with the site.
- I am stalking you. I want to be informed about everything that you do.
- I think that this is cool. You can subscribe to this content if you think it's cool, too.
- Sometimes I think that you have neat things to say. I want to see some of it, sometimes.
- Please leave me alone. You are dead to me on this site. I do not exist for you.
What other modes have you seen or wished for?
