I saw several new friends pop up on my friends list today, what happened?

On June 9, 2021, Battle.net announced the launch of its global friends list. This means if you were sticking to one region of your friends' list most of the time, but had added friends in a different region, you will now see both sets of friends at the same time. If it's been a while since you logged in to a different region, it may cause you to see friends you may not immediately recognize. Those can be removed/edited with the same functionality you used before.
