I cannot get the difference between приятель and знакомый. I know that друг is a strong word, but what's the difference between these two?

Приятель - is somebody, with whom you can have fun. It derives from the word приятно = pleasant.
Знакомый - the person you know. You might have met that person at some party or you know him/her through business. You are not close at all.
