Buffs are created by use of gathered resources converted into Platters, Sandwiches or Baskets from the Buffs Tab in your Provision House.
Once you create a buff it is placed in your Star Menu and can be clicked on and placed on your production buildings to double their output, without increasing the resources consumed, for a brief period of time. Buffs can not be stacked at this time. Buffable buildings will light up once the buff has been selected to indicate buffable businesses.
A buffed building is surrounded by silver sparkles or golden swirls as the worker doubles his efforts. Silver sparkles denotes a building that you have buffed yourself. Golden swirls are shown on a building that has been buffed by a friend.
Clicking the building brings up the information tab that will show green sparkles around the building product icon on the top right to show it's been buffed and above that a countdown timer to show how much longer the buff will be active for.
Friend Buffing Bonus
The great thing with buffs is that if you buff a friends buildings the buff duration is increased by 50%, this fosters good game play and encourages trading of buffs with fellow players.
To buff a friend visit them by clicking on their portrait on the bottom bar, select Visit, wait for their land to load, select the buff from your Star Menu and click on their production buildings, just as you do your own.

Issues with Reciprocal Friend Buffing
When a friend buffs you their icon appears on the left side of your game window and the buff sound plays just like it does when you buff yourself. If you are AFK the News chat tab will record the event but at this time does not tell you who buffed what with what kind of buff.
If you are logged off, visiting a friend or on an Adventure you will receive an email that records exactly who buffed what and how for each buff used so you can easily return the favour.
