Bug Description

'friends' does not actually fit the phone security model (any app with access can impersonate the user with impunity on social media). friends-app is being dropped from the phone, and friends-service should also be dropped from the framework definition for 14.10.

We need to keep friends-service on the phone as long as we support the 14.04 framework, but it should not be allowed by the SDK when targeting 14.10.
