I think a simpler way to explain this is to have something like "organic
groups".  This is something that another "competitive" platform has.
This way users can create their own social groups and add/remove
permissions and view to their stories/static pages etc based on those
This is a concept that would be a foundation for more social
applications for GL.

Creating the social group concept would have to extend into the core
plugins then and also will have ramifications on the search ability.
This alone would be a GSOC project.
