One thing that I think would be a good idea for Facebook to implement would be rule-based access privileges for different groups that you can define. The groups shouldn't be visible to anyone other than yourself, of course; the last thing you'd need would be for "friends" to see that they weren't "good friends."

Punching holes in the walls of reality
All my life I've wanted to fly
But I don't have the wings, and I wonder why
I can't break away
