(Real Life Friends, Funny Reviews, In Depth Reviewers, etc.)
I have close friends I follow and am always having to drill into my "network" list to find their latest reviews and activity. I'd love a way for the people I care about most to jump to the top of my starting page, perhaps by letting us "star" certain users. Or maybe more usefully, by allowing the creation of "groups" akin to facebook - e.g., one could create a "Real Life Friends" list of users or a "Funny Reviewers", or otherwise make following disparate users easier.
Great call. We’re investigating some sources for the data to power something like this, and will let you know how we get on.
Yes, we’d like to do this, but it’s not a quick development job so we’ve not been able to prioritize it to date.
We’re considering options around this at present. Thanks for your input, which is invaluable.
