Circle Management Tools

We let you define two different kinds of relationship between your account and the other accounts you add to your Circle: Subscription and Access. When you subscribe to a personal journal, community, or feed, its new entries will be included on your Reading Page. That account will be able to read your public entries even if it doesn't subscribe to you in return, but your public entries won't appear on its Reading Page unless it also subscribes to you. People you've Granted Access to will be able to read the protected content (locked entries) you post to your journal.

Security

You use your Access List to restrict access to some or all of your entries; only the people to whom you've given access will be able to view them. This doesn't apply to communities or feeds.

  • When you use "Access List" security, everyone on your access list can view your entry.
  • You can specify which access groups can view your entry with "Custom" access. If you select multiple groups for one entry, it will be visible to anyone in any of those groups.
