It's there for a reason so it has to do something!
So If u touch someone's tiles, you lose yours? :!:
Apparently when you tap a neighbor's tile while visiting, it takes it away from them. In other words it doesn't allow them to collect the tile when they come back to harvest it. It only gives them XP.
I went to 2 or 3 towns with Squidport and did this. I went to the opening poster's town too and while I had the option to perform 3 tasks, there was no floating tile option available there. Odd.
I'm hoping this is a glitch like the "losing snakes while visiting other towns" that happened during the first part of Whacking Day.
