Sounds great as long as we still have the option to just invite people to be friends with a particular character. There are a couple of good real life friends I'd want to share my real ID with, but otherwise I want some privacy when I'm running around on alts (let alone when I'm playing other games!)

I'm pretty sure this is going to be battle.net account-wide. Meaning that they will be able to see you no matter what you're doing. Its a bit much, but its no different than facebook or some other social networking application.I agree with the privacy bit though. Including an "invisible" option would be very wise on Blizzard's part.

Account-wide is great as long as I don't have to leave the game to see it. if I have to tab out to a battle.net window to chat, it's useless to me.

I agree about the invisible option. I got rid of Xfire because I was getting bugged by people in-game. I do like the social aspect of WoW, but I also like to be able to control it.

That definitely would be different than facebook, as you can group people up into special groups that you make and choose to be shown offline to them. I personally hope it means you can invite people into groups cross-realm (in your same battlegroup).
