There are two primary roles; helper and subject.


Subject

As a subject you are the person that the helper is watching your activity.


Helper


As a helper you are the person watching the subject’s activity

In buzzzie you automatically have both roles as soon as another helper has added you to their watch list.

For instance, Frank adds Mary to his watch list. Frank is the helper and Mary is the Subject. Bruce adds Frank to his watch list. Frank is now both the helper of Mary and the Subject of Bruce. Bruce will not know or see anything about Mary and Mary will not know or see anything about Bruce.

A subject can have many helpers.

A third role exists and is an elevation to the helper role. This role is called Assistant. You must be a helper in order to be an assistant.


Assistant

As an assistant you are the person that the subject will alert in an S.O.S scenario.

A subject can have many assistants. Assistants must be selectively chosen by the Subject. The role is not automatically granted by the app.
