Thank you for clarification!

IMO we can and should explore different ways of modeling it

1) Follow different aspects (personas?) of me
2) Subscribe to different channels/feeds/streams which I publish
3) Subscribe to different channels/feeds/streams which my different
aspects (personas?) publish

Distinctions between
1) *follow* a *Person* (including using it as *Persona*)
2) *subscribe* to *Channel* (*Feed* / *Stream*)

could possibly help here.

Also each Person(a) could have *default* channel(feed/stream) and follow
action would also automatically subscribe to it...

While we already tend to conflate a Person and its web Profile, I don't
think we should throw also Feed on top of it and use same URI to denote
all/any of it!


Constraint: URIs Identify a Single Resource

Assign distinct URIs to distinct resources.
