When adding a new friend a form is displayed allowing the user to sort that friend into existing collections using checkboxes, and create new collections by using a comma delimited list similar to tags.

Existing friends have a new option on their profile menu labeled "collections" that provides the same interface to easily modify the collections for that friend.

Additionally notifications settings can be set/updated in the same interface.

 

In the words of Jon Dron - "in many ways better and more intuitive that Google Circles! It achieves much the same ends and has been built for almost exactly the same reasons."

 

Funding for this work has been provided through Athabasca University (championed by Dr. Jon Dron) with development support from Anethum Corporation.
