In brief: Mononucleosis

Assuming you are referring to EBV infection this depends upon how close a friend.
This is often known as the kissing disease, but can be transmitted respiratorily in some instances.

In brief: Kissing's the risk

In some cultures, friends kiss like lovers do, and this can be risky while your friend is sick.
But I wouldn't be the one to say it's not worth the risk. Otherwise, it's not infectious.
