I have a number of different groups of people to whom I wish to give access only to pictures relevant to them eg a different Shared Photostream for each of:



Close Family

Distant Family

Close Friends

Distant Friends

Work Colleagues



From what I have been able to find on the Apple website and from a cursory Google search it appears that only a single shared photostream is available to me. How can I make it possible to set up multiple shared photostreams please so for instance my distant friends cannot see my girlfriend pics, and my close family can't see my Client pics?


iOS v6.0.2

Snow Leopard v10.6.8

iPhoto '08 v7.1.5 (378)


The old Galleries arrangement was far more sophisticated than this. And in any case, with Snow Leopard on my Mac I can only see Photostream on my iPhone 5 and iPad 2, not a big issue really but it does seem Apple aren't giving the customer what the customer wants, just what Apple says we want. :-(
