Strong Tie Friends vs. Weak Tie Followers

We have another request to unlock the value of our strong ties currently buried in today's social network applications that are optimized for weak ties:

"Facebook needs to adopt a friend/follower system.

What I mean by this is that there needs to be a two-tier system for Facebook. On one level, you have the things you share with your friends. On the other, you have what you share with your followers (including your friends). "
