It adds them to your Friends tab in your profile. It's just an easy way to keep track of friends you have met within the Nikonians Forums and is a simple Rolodex for sending emails and private Nikonians messages. Just add someone as a Friend, click the "My Profile" link up near your user name (top right) and then select the "Friends" tab and you'll see them added.
