use case 3 I'm trying to follow some friends and celebrities on-line, and a tool tells me: "Your contact has updated his bio on 2 of his 5 social network profiles. Do you want to see the changes?"
use case 4 I'm following people on Facebook, and a nifty tool lets me know: "One of your contacts deleted her Facebook profile, and she has now joined a new open source network called OpenBladibla."
