What If You Aren’t (yet) My Friend

I suggested in a blog post yesterday that you could read this blog in Facebook. Well I missed a big point with that suggestion.

You can read this blog in Facebook if you are my friend in Facebook, but not if you aren’t.

I’ve taken the approach with Facebook (and LinkedIn) of only accepting friend requests from people I actually know.

But there are tens of thousands of readers of this blog who are people I want to have a relationship with but aren’t technically my friends.

I’ve said this before on this blog. We need a second kind of relationship in social networks.I want people to see my profile who aren’t actually friends.

Maybe fans followers? Or something else?
