Once a friend has visited your island, you will be asked to download an app to your NookPhone. This is the Best Friends app, which will allow you to send them direct messages and add your friends as best friends!
Having someone as your Best Friend gives them more freedom on your island. They can use all of their tools, and you'll be able to chat them up using the Best Friends app. If you really trust your friend, you should consider adding them as your Best Friend!
