Seriously, I am tired of every new service where I have to add and approve friends. I want one place where I set all my relationship and then it gets applied to EVERY service. Including phone apps where I have to create new social circles. And yes, I should be able to tweak these per app, but for fuck's sake, give me my basic setup of my "social graph" or whatever today's term for it is.
This will never happen though bc while every person in technology talks about how important the user experience is, they only care about OWNing it. No one gives a shit about the actual user and what we want.
So instead of Google and Facebook and Twitter fighting about who owns me, how about if I own myself and set these relationships and host it myself and somehow these get sucked into each service.
Come on tech geniuses, devise a way for the USER to really be in control if you dare.
