I was asked the following question by a G+ user today, about Narrative:
Does your social network service allow a user to hide community memberships, and posts in communities in which the user is a member, from the user's main circle?
That's G+ speak for: will everyone be able to see what niches you are a follower of, and will everyone be able to see all your posts by looking at your profile?
That's an approximate translation, considering G+ circles are a social networking component that Narrative has no equivalent for, and apparently no plans to implement. (This lack of a strongly social component to the Narrative paradigm may prove to be disappointing to many, and could be a hurdle to widespread adoption).
These privacy related questions are interesting to discuss, so that we are all clear about the choices Narrative makes in this respect, and why it makes them.
