Refer to the image below for what each will do. They are referred to from left to right, top to bottom. Follow the colored circles.

Grey: This is your neighbor's name. (Or yours if it is the orange one.)

Black: These two buttons allow you to scroll through your neighbor bar. There is one set on either side and will allow you to scroll in the direction they point. The top one will scroll one neighbor at a time, the bottom one will scroll to the next or previous 8 neighbors.
Dark Blue: This is your Island Paradise mail. If you have mail to read, the letter will have numbers in front of it. You can also use it to compose mail to any of your neighbors. For the main article, see Mailbox.
Dark Purple: This allows you to take pictures of your island. For the main article, see Snapshot.

The Neighbor Bar is limited to 400 neighbors. If you have over 400 neighbors the game will randomly chose 400 to display every time you load the game.
Sometimes players will see the neighbor bar load and their name appear as 'null'. Reload the game to make it go away. It can take many tries. Generally, problems associated with players seeing themselves as null is because of Facebook issues.
