The tag friends (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?
