Explanation:
those "%1$d" are known as "placeholders" in web page codes

Just replace the placeholders with the actual meaning of each placeholder (as in the notes provided by the client), then translate the sentence into Chinese, then put the placeholders back in the Chinese sentence

So, here “%1$d friends in common including %2$@” = 包括%2$@在内的%1$d位共同的朋友
