What are friends for?

#1
The FAQ lists:

What is the difference between a friend and a contact?
Where is list of friends and contacts displayed?
How can I request a friend, accept a friend or break a friendship?

...but doesn't explain what friends are for. Is it to decide sides for ARRSE's 20th July Plot?

Need to know as time is running out.

Buggered if I know. I thought it was to do with getting notifications if friends posted, and also I thought you could email friends rather than PM them. Neither of those seem to be true. Maybe someone who uses another vbulletin-run forum can enlighten us?

Reading between the lines answers the question, I think.

It's obviously far easier to break a friendship than a contact.

Solar topee and a reliable rickshaw-wallah, please.

Contacts vs. friends - vBulletin.org Forum

Something you only need to worry about for things like albums and blogs by the look of it. A friend is a trusted contact basically.
As I still haven't got the hang of albums and blogging seems to be the art of taking notes while talking to yourself, I'll happily remain oblivious, then.

Thanks for the clarification.
