    How to have Privacy Settings enabled ?
    I am trying this with a multi-user site using latest WordPress 3.9 Beta 3 +BuddyPress 2.0 Beta 1.

    Basically what I want is the most basic and most important feature of any social net (FB etc) or any social net script ( Elgg, Drupal Commons etc) whenever any user posts a blog or photo or anything he/she should be able to set the post for any of the following :
    Public / Friends only/ Myself only
    Added advantage will be if “Friends” can be grouped into various entities like co-workers | batchmates | etc

    The user should be also able to make his entire profile private / friends only / public etc and be able to delete or make friends only activity stream items as wanted.

    Thanks for the feature request. At this time BuddyPress only provides visibility settings for individual profile fields. We’ve been putting off building a robust member to member permissions component until after we have attachments. Right now, everything in BuddyPress is loosely considered public.

    Remember that BuddyPress is still powered by WordPress, and WordPress’s roles and capabilities system isn’t really powerful enough or scalable enough to handle permissions for millions to millions of users.

    That said, there have been plugins that attempted to fill this void, but none of them gained a whole ton of traction unfortunately. We’ll get there, but it’s a bit of a long road.

    Can you or anyone please post uri of such plugin that works with WordPress 3.9 Beta 3 +BuddyPress 2.0 Beta 1.

    “everything in BuddyPress is loosely considered public.”

    But isn’t BP meant to be a social net (a network that cares about privacy) ? Thanks for responding and replying.
