Right-click their avatar, select "add as friend". There are other simple ways, too. Then the other person is sent a message offering friendship, which they can accept if they want.

Just remember that SL is not Facebook.  Most of us reject requests that come from people we do not know well enough to know as real friends.  Don't be offended if you get no response or a rejection when you offer friendship to someone who doesn't know you here.  ;)

Rolig is telling you a bit about etiquette in SL. In general we ask if we may 'friend' a person before sending a friend request.

Also, there are levels of friendship. In the first level they can tell when you are online by default. You can however retain the friend and turn off the 'now online notification'. You can enable MAP (off by default), which means they can click your name in the Friends List and find you on the World Map. You can share your stuff with them (also off by default)... they can Edit, Delete, or Take items you own... like being married or in SL partners.

To change the friend's permissions used to be easy. Now you must open their Profile, select SETTINGS, select PERMISSIONS and then grant or deny the permissions. Way too many clicks. Firestorm Viewer has the old style method with permissions in columns in the People/Contacts panel. One only need open the panel, find the name, and then click the permissions to enable or disable. Much easier.

So, you can see there are more aspects to offering friendship in SL. We give friending much more consideration than we do on Facebook, Twitter, FLickr, etc...
