Frequent sites shows sites you visit often and recent activity on them.
Suggested sites appear based on searches you've done and recommendations from the Microsoft Graph.
Note: Microsoft Graph must be enabled by your admin to see Featured links and Suggested sites on your SharePoint homepage.

Recent shows any site you've gone to recently.
Featured links displays sites your company wants to showcase.
