The Spyglass has it's own friends list. Whenever a person on your friends list is in the same region as you currently are, the name will be shown on the Spyglass HUD.
The Spyglass friends list has nothing to do with your SL friends list. No one will know who is on your friends list except you. And if you have to, you can of course also put your enemies on the list so you can teleport away in case someone nasty is in the same region.
The Spyglass will show the distance to your friend (no matter how far away she or he is) and gives you abilities to focus your camera on them, locate them with a beam, teleport to them, do something to them (by default, hug, kiss, or spank — see Messages), send a secret message, or talk as them — and all with a single mouse click!
This is the Spyglass's default view. It is enabled whenever the "Friends" display mode button is highlighted.
The friends' names are color coded according to your distance to them:
Next to the name of a friend you will see eight action buttons:

In order to remove someone from your friends list, click the "Remove" action button if the person is near you or open the menu , click "Friends" — "Remove" — the name of the person to remove.
