I am not sure what the situation is with these two projects, there seems to be some discussion about it here:
Sounds like they might be slightly different things?
Yes, it's not mentioned explicitly, and I don't understand why. 😁
The fact that ForgeFriends uses the ForgeFed protocol is a good new, because it's really important for the compatibility with other forges. So it should me more explicit imho.
Knowing that ActivityPub protocol is used is not enough, because AP was not designed to federate forges.
