Default poly friendships...

In poly communities, what is the difference between community members, lovers and friends... it seems blurred to me... or am I just being well, me?

Who are my friends? Who are just community members and how do people know the difference between lovers and the rest of people they hang out with when they have friends-with-benefits, tersiaries and intimate friends mixed in together.

Is it individual description? Is there a set sort of fall back definition like primary and secondary and does it kind of trickle down from there to people who are invested less in or that are acquaintances? How does one know where to invest their time and effort in terms of all this confusion? Or maybe I am the only one confused?
