Connecting to others. In Gaia's system, she is able to see
some of her friends immediately. Some are instantly placed in her
world, shown because of their automatic matching. Likewise, she
is automatically placed into some of their worlds based on the information
that she has contributed. When she clicks on an individual in her
world, information about them comes up, including a button where
she can access information about them. In that state, she sees the
world that they have laid out for her and the appropriate context.
These contexts (facets) have the public labels that her associates
have set out for her. She is also able to see the labels of the
public facets that she does not have access to. If she believes
that she should have access to one of these, Gaia clicks on that
facet and is prompted with questions for more information. In this
way, she must answer the questions that her associates have prepared.
If the facet is multi-layered, she may be prompted to answer my
questions to get into the inner circle of information.
