Friendship is how the players relationship with Characters is measured.
Each character can be leveled up to Friendship Level 10. Every Friendship level awards a prize - either Star Coins or a unique Motif, Clothing, or Furniture item that cannot be obtained in any other way.
Tip: When trying to level up the characters, go into the Menu>Collections>Characters. There will be a list of all characters there. If you put your cursor over a character, in the bottom right-hand corner will be a list of their three "favorite things of the day". Giving one or more of these items to the character will produce extra friendship stars so they will level up faster! (The items can consist of anything that comes from anywhere in the game, so it is possible that a character's current favorite item(s) of the day may be something(s) you do not have access to/cannot make yet.)
In order to Hang Out with a Villager, you must first reach Friendship Level 2 and select a Role. While Hanging Out, the character will follow you around the Village, including into any Character Houses or Locations. Characters will not follow the Player to other Realms. They will not sit down or leave in the middle of Hanging Out to follow their regular schedule of eating in Chez Remy, sleeping, or browsing Scrooge's Store - however, as soon as you stop Hanging Out or restart the game, they may resume their regular schedule.

Hanging out with a Villager with a role has a chance to provide extra resources. Assigning additional Villagers to the same role will increase the bonus resource chance for all characters with that role.
This hang out bonus is also tied to the Friendship level of the both the "hang out" Villager and all other Villagers with the same role.
The bonus chance of a resource when gathering while hanging out with a Villager with the matching role is:
Bonus Chance = Base Chance + Active Friend Level + Inactive Friend Level
- Base Chance: 20% for Gardening, and 25% for all other roles.
- Active Friend Level: 3.5% per friendship level of the Villager hanging out, up to 35% at level 10 friendship
- Inactive Friend Level: 1% per friendship level of all friends not hanging out, up to 10% each friend at level 10 friendship
This means bonus resources will be generated 100% of the time while hanging out if there are 5 Villagers assigned that same role (6 if the role is Gardening).
