As far as I know, our new Gadget-based server collaboration uses
friends in the following way: When there are more people on the server
than you can see, in Neighborhood View you will always see your
friends, and then a random selection of other people and activities.
This makes it more significant to "friend" people you know and want to
collaborate with, so that you will see them again. Friends View is
then a quick way to see which of your friends are on line, and to
remove friends.

As Marco said, Friends View itself will have more usefulness in future.
