What dies it mean to put your arm around a friend's shoulder? (A friend put their arm around my shoulder for a photo at Spring Ball).

Maybe they feel comfortable around you? They enjoy your presence obviously...

Of course it’s s sign of fondness. We tend not to touch people we don’t care about. But it’s not a big deal. It simply means that they feel comfortable enough with you for that type of closeness

But if it's for taking a photo, it kind of shows less fondness than if it's just random. Like I've had a lecturer put their arm around my shoulder for a photo, which I'm sure they wouldn't if we weren't taking a photo.

It means the person feels safe enough with you to do that.

For a photograph it means nothing. People will put their arms around strangers they’re in photos in.
