On empowr, you can have two kinds of relationship with other citizens:
- Fans: are a one-way relationship that allow you to follow someone and view their posts in your newsfeed.
- Friends: are a two-way relationship that both citizens must confirm, and are for people that have actually met each other in person.
When you send or receive a friend request, you have the freedom to categorize that friend into one or more categories. If the friend does not fit into an existing category, you can create a new category for them.
By categorizing your friends, you can choose exactly who you post content to – All Friends, Some Friends, or the entire empowr community. When you are sharing status updates, photos or videos, you can choose who can view them by selecting the options:
You can also sort your news feed to view content from your friends, fans, or both:
By placing the people you know in specific categories, you have much more control over who sees and shares your content.
