A quick Google search (actually I use Duckduckgo but "a quick Duck or DDG search" would sound weird...) showed that "friend's" was a bit more common, whereas a Google user manual or tutorial used "friends' " and I (maybe biasly) assume them to use (more) correct grammar. The sentence used in the Google user manual was:
"See friends' locations on a map"

Friend's means of a single friend, friends' means of multiple friends. General rule: for a single form - noun+'s, for plural form - noun+s'.

  • Thanks, it seems so obvious now...And, well, it actually is. – What's my name Mar 27 '16 at 12:48
