You can view the problem from the perspective of intimacy, or you can view it from the perspective of information management. There's a 'read' side (what I consume in terms of information that comes at me through the links of my social graph) and a 'write' side (what I create and to whom I send it, through the links of my social graph). On the read side, people suffer from information overload -- social clutter. They need tools for cutting out the stuff they don't want to see and for receiving updates from people that they do want to see, on topics that are interesting to them. Wowd's "custom feeds" do exactly this. You can try the Wowd social client by going to http://www.wowd.com/ . There's an overview of the social clutter problem here: http://searchenginewatch.com/3641447 . (This article explains how Facebook's groups relate to a custom feed.)
