Neighbors are an important part of playing Farmville. Neighbors help to fertilize your farm and feed your chickens, and they can be a great source of gifts, lost animals, and mystery eggs. By helping out your neighbor’s farms, you can also earn coins and experience points for yourself.
Finding neighbors can be tricky, especially if your friends don’t play the game. First, try sending invites to your friends to play Farmville. To do so, click on the “Invite Friends” tab above the game window and then choose people to invite among your friends list. An invite will be sent to these friends, and they can choose to accept, ignore, or decline your invitation.
You can also go to the “My Neighbors” tab and see which of your friends are already playing Farmville. On this page, you’ll see info on each friend’s level, achievements earned, and number of neighbors. We recommend scanning the list for players who are the most active. They are more likely to visit your farm and send you gifts.
If you’re looking to add highly active Farmville players as neighbors, you can also check out other resources such as the official Farmville forum. There is a thread called “Find Neighbors” where you can find other players looking for neighbors, and then add them to your farm.
You might also think about inviting people from Farmville fan sites. Search on “Farmville” in Facebook and look for results that mention “neighbors.” Many of these groups allow you to post “add me” messages so other members can invite you as neighbors; you can also send invitations to players listed on these sites. To increase your success rate, try including stats about your game level and activity, especially if you’re a very active player and highly advanced in the game.
The maximum number of neighbors that you can invite is 300, however you can keep accepting new neighbors that send you invitations.
If you’re worried about adding strangers to your account, you can restrict your privacy settings so you can add Farmville neighbors without giving them access to the rest of your Facebook profile. Here are the steps to do so:
1. Go to your “Friends” tab on Facebook
2. Click on the “Create New List” button above your listed friends
3. Type “Farmville Friends” in the box where it says “Enter a Name”
4. Hit “Create List”
5. Go to the “Settings” tab
6. Click on the “manage” link next to Privacy
7. Click on “Profile Information”
8. For each category, click on the drop down menu to the right and choose “Customize”
9. Under “Hide this from,” add “Farmville Friends” in the box that says “These people”
10. Click “Save Setting”
Now anyone you add to your Farmville Friends list will not be able to see your restricted profile information. When you click on the “Friends” tab in Facebook, you should see a “Add to List” button next to each of your friends. Click on “Facebook Friends” to add anyone you wish to include in this list.
