The tag (8 non-deleted questions, no tag wiki) is one of those useless meta tags. It seems to refer to several different concepts:

  • Adding some kind of social media-style 'friends list' to the system
  • Referring friends to Stack Exchange
  • Concerns over sanctions when someone votes on a post belonging to a 'friend'
  • A question seeking friends (really!).

It was brought to my attention few days ago by someone posting a question asking for dating advice (+10k only).

Do we really need this tag?

Looks like this had approval for awhile, so I went ahead and removed this tag from the 6 questions (4 of which are dupe-closed) that had it.

I'm sorry to say, but I made no in the process. It was a rather lonely process, actually.

This is now .

Seems legit, unless someone has a great reason we should keep the tag, so give it a week then we might be able to get rid of the tag, and some of the questions too.
