Related items are items that have direct relevance to the item you're viewing. Think of them as child items, where the child item is related to a parent item along with other child items. For example, the Related list for a Social Object might contain Conversations about planning, financing, ownership, and other types of topics surrounding the Social Object. The list could include collections of relevant items, groups comprised of the people involved in fulfilling the Social Object's goal, or other Social Objects that are relevant to this Social Object.
Referring items are the Social Object and collections that the item you're viewing has been added to (as a related item). Think of them as parent items, where the parent item refers to one or more child items.
