Private Posts and Sharing #2481
Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Traditional silos like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have the concept of sharing content privately with explicitly defined audiences. This is a problem that the IndieWeb community has been thinking about for some time, and a very common friction point preventing IndieWeb adoption.
Describe the solution you'd like
Known already has the concept of marking specific content as "private," "public," or limiting content to "members only." I would propose adding the concept of "protected" content. Protected content would be available only to those people with whom the content has been explicitly shared. I would propose two ways to identify people that are granted access:
With this mechanism in place, Known users could replicate the use case that many people use Facebook for, and make better use of their personal websites.
