All new accounts will get the initial friends ("news", etc, etc...)
Mandatory friends (more controversial) would be a subset of those which couldn't be removed, unless you had the "removemandatory" capability (which paid users would have). So basically, Mark wanted a way to force free users to read at least "news", or something like a "freeusers" community.
Ignoring the idea of whether or mandatory friends is a good idea, could somebody implement this? At least the initial friends if you're extremely opposed to aiding in any way the mandatory friends?
Shouldn't take long to do, but I have another project at the time.
