What is a Friend?
When you like a member of TSR you can request to add them as a friend. They will be sent a friendship request, and, if accepted, you will be added to each other's friends list. A friends list is simply a list of all the members that a person has become friends with on the site. Your friends will be displayed in your profile. If you have privacy settings set to 'Friends' then those members on your friends list will be able to see content, such as photo albums, that members you are not friends with can't.

An example of a Friends list in a profile can be seen below:
