Comma

Hey friends.
Hey, friends.

which is correct?

Re: Comma

true friends
loyal friends

What are 'hey friends'?
My point being that 'hey' is quite separate to 'friends' and is an exclamation used to attract attention. Exclamations such as this are separated from other text by the use of a comma:

Hey, friends.

Re: Comma

Nowadays, the trend is towards minimum punctuation in salutations.

In British English, many people omit the comma. I do!
