    お友達 is made of お (the polite prefix) and 友達(a noun meaning "friend/pal/mate"). It doesn't necessarily mean "あなたの/your" friend(s); it can be "my friend(s)" or any one's friend(s), depending on the context.

    あなたの友達 literally means "your friend", and the あなたの can often be left out when it's obvious from the context.
