Since a few weeks I have been collecting ideas and feedback about web profiles feeds / my.secondlife.com from Second Life residents who are using this new tool to communicate with other users.
Below is the current list of suggestions. The up-to-date version lives at https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/My.secondlife.com_User_Group and constitutes the discussion Agenda for the next user group meeting. We don't currently know when the meeting will have place. Nya, Viale and other Linden Lab employees are engaging in conversations with residents on the my.secondlife.com network itself.
There's currently a poll based on 4 of these feature requests at http://virtualoutworlding.blogspot.com - go and choose your favorite one.
LIST OF FEATURE REQUESTS FOR my.secondlife.com (Sept 8, 2011)
Recently Released (these are already working)Cross-posting to Facebook
Location tagging for posts, and Nearby feeds for regions
Display Name and Profile Picture changes shown in feed

option to show my own messages on Home
option to "mute" (turn off notifications) for an individual thread (separate from 'hide', which anyway doesn't currently mute notifications)
ability to disable getting a post to your home page everytime a friend changes display name - (it's definitely on the list)
new tab showing activities from all my.secondlife.com users. This would make easier to spot active users. Best if it includes a filter for activities (eg: I may want to only see new posts but not comments, etc)
Postingoption to edit a post or a comment
option to hide from my profile a post I left on other users' profiles. Details
basic text formatting (bold, italic at least)
https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-4070control+a ("select all text") does not work in new feed update input box; nor do control+left/right arrow, control+End or control+Homethese keyboard shortcuts do not work in the inworld browser either. This is a Webkit issue. Possibly related: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4
ability to "Undo" after removing posts/threads/comments
@-replies, Twitter-style (autosuggestion and autocompletion). @usernamelinks to user's profileIf the mentioned user is a friend they should get a notification of the mention. Else it should just end up in a 'mentioned' tab/list.

better link to Flickr so that pictures you post can show up in the feed, if you want it to
more social network links (such as Facebook pages)
a way to post what I share to my profile stream on my blog
an RSS feed of our feed posts and Home feeds. That way we could use existing rss-to-blog or rss-to-twitter software
an API so I could keep track of the feed in an external client
https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-3969 Profiles: When reposting to twitter, included URLs should auto-shorten (bug acknowledged on Aug 30)
Messaginggroup chat - Maybe even a new kind of group that does not take a Second Life group slot
Direct/Private message. IM is still the only way so far to share stuff with just one person
Calendara "Calendar" tab which, depending on your privacy settings, showed events you posted, had RSVPed for, or were being hosted by groups you were in or on land featured in your Picks tab. Again, see Penny Patton's post for details; this feature may be developed separately from Penny's wider redesign
Friends, Groups, Privacy
Upcoming: "Follow" feature, which lets you read updates from users not in your Friendlist (if their updates are public)
ability to split up our friends list into different groups/circles with ability to manage our privacy levels based on those groupings
https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-3980 Profile Feed Doesnt Respect your Mute/Block List
https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-3964 Privacy Setting, Adding an options to lock the "Add Friend" button. (bug acknowledged on Aug 30)
new feature: depending on privacy settings you would get notifications about upcoming birthdays and/or rezdays of people
Notificationsnew feature: option to have notifications respect online status, so inworld notifications can automatically stop as soon as we go offline
Picturesoption to send snapshots from the viewer to your feed
option to attach a picture to a message
"on FB when you [..?..] a link, you get either a picture (if it was a picture link) or the link to the website with a preview when it was a normal URL, in the post"
Interestssomething against Interests spam. Spam examples
more interests (30 - 50)
Mobilemobile HTML theme
Integration with Marketplace(where it says 'share this item') ability to post to my feed for my followers to see. Would boost community generated promotion.
"Follow this creator" or "View Creator Profile" buttons to allow people to follow the creators feeds for further updates
Integration with Forums, Answers and Land, Event, Groups profilesUpgrade Land and Group Profiles as well as Event Listings all in ways to interconnect them. Thread them all together and also create a new way to use SL search to track down content relevant to one's interests. See Penny Patton's post for specific details. Some examples:
when I add a post to an existing thread, or create my own thread on the Second Life forums, or pose a question to, or provide an Answer, or receive Kudos or a reply, that should appear in my feed
people could "pin" forum posts to a tab in their social profile, like "Picks" but for forum threads
Group and Land tabs, which would also have Calendars
Group, Event and Land profiles would include interest tags like profiles
Groups Profiles could list multiple in-world locations significant to the group
Land profiles would list all groups that linked to that land as a group location
Land profiles could have a number of "landmark" locations for "must see" spots in the land
Group, event and land profiles would all have "shout-out" boards people could post messages to
Groups would have a constant "group chatroom"
Designidea: put feed in the viewer sidebar inside the profile tab. Mockup
Searchsaved searches (limited to mySL)
hashtags searches (limited to mySL)
Web access to inventoryability to insert/link to landmarks, objects, notecards and share then. It's understood this is a powerful and dangerous approach though.
