I made a rough mockup in Figma to show what I mean. Twitter has something that's very much like this:
I miss it all the time.
I can also see this popover having a meatball menu surfacing mute and block options, though I'm not sure if having a popover over a popover is a no-no. When the notes feature is added, it might also be a good place to surface those notes, in case you're like "wait, who is this person on my feed again?"
YES PLEEEEEAASE oh my god
it's so aggravating how slow it is to follow people or to just take a brief glimpse at someone's profile :C
will help us know if we're already following someone
This would be fantastic!
I can see a lot of benefits to this feature so long as activating the popover requires a delay similar to twitter's implementation. I would not want an instantaneous popover similar to tumblr's implementation.
