i noticed one can write notes on people's profiles and it says that only he and his friends can see the note written by him

if i write a note on a profile, is it going to be visible to the players i follow, to the players that follow me or both?

i know the reasonable thing to assume is that a friend is the user i choose to follow but that would mean that i can be someone's friend without him being my friend, is this the case?

If someone only accepts challenges from friends, it means that he accepts challenges only from those he follows.

If I am following a person that isn't following me, he/she shows up as "friend" in "online friends"

Players that are following me never show up as "friend" if I'm not following them.

Then I would say friend = someone you are following

However I'm not complete sure who count as friends.
