I can only speak for me. It is someone that I share specific interests and comraderie with. For example, on my friends list there are people that share interests in macro photography, film, vintage cameras, m42 Pentax, vintage Pentax, street photography etc. That said, that doesn't mean that all my friends are listed.

The advantage is it allows for a quick link to posts of relevance.

I wouldn't put it like that. Its something that you will use it or not use it. This is the only forum I use it on in part because there are so many members. We also have a Social Groups feature but I think the friends feature is more informal and more user friendly, no pun intended.

Edit: When I say its has a lot of members, it takes a while to scroll through the members list even though its in alphabetical order.

Just another feature to use at your will, really, keeping an account of those who you do form more of a relationship with online.
