Something that would be cool to see in later versions of nostr front-ends would be different "views" that basically crib social feed styles that different audiences like.

For example, an Instragram type photo view (which you just swipe over to from the standard tweetstyle pane, or whatever). This is not just a raw dump of every photo on the nostr relay spool (which are as of right now mostly tweet-style), but only the ones people metatag to appear on this pane (for example, indicating they match a fixed aspect ratio, or are just intended for the photo-scroll, or whatever).

By supporting different ways to tag user posts to display in different views (or just handle it invisibly), front-ends can enable Nostr to become basically the "master" social media site that doesn't just replace Twitter, but replaces everything. There's no reason Nostr can't queue up short-form TikTok style videos for you, or long-form YouTube style ones, or Facebook-style event planning, or hell, even a LinkedIn style feed of CVs. All of these sites are just a collection of tags, content refs, and views. Users can just check and uncheck the panes they want to be able to swipe through.

Nostr can be anything to anyone.
