Won’t you be my FarmVille Neighbor?

Posted on May 21, 2010 11:52 am by FarmVille Freak CabbagePatchKid

Won't You be my FarmVille Neighbor?

There was once a time when everyone could send gifts and share bonuses galore! Farmers could send gifts to non-neighbors, receive collection bonuses, mystery eggs, as well as fertilize/feed non-neighbors farms. This golden era of farming generosity has slowly been put to a stop by Zynga. In February Zynga stopped all non-neighbor link sharing, so homefeed bonuses and gift sending is now and has been neighbor only for sometime. Sometime this week (possibly last night?) farm viewing has been also limited to neighbor only. This means that you can only view, fertilize crops and feed your neighbors coops. While many people loved to take advantage of the coins and Xp of ‘ferting and feeding’ non-neighbors, this option has been used just to check out others farms. Now we will have to rely on screenshots or images to see farms.

Neighbors are now more of a must have than ever before. While some farmers are lucky enough to have the maximum 300 neighbors, there are certainly a lot of people who do not. FarmVille Freak has always offered you places to find neighbors, such as our FarmVille Freak Forums and Chatrooms. It is understandable though that some will not add people they do not know to Facebook. But, keep in mind that Facebook does offer different levels of privacy. So you can always add people for the use of FarmVille neighbors and keep almost 99% of personal information private.

How many FarmVille neighbors do you have?

    You can buy neighbors on ebay. LMAO I saw a few auctions were someone is selling 5 -10 -20 neighbors for money. Wonder how much he/she is making off this. Would someone seriously buy an auction to get neighbors? I know I wouldn’t!!! LOL

    Can you tell me how to keep this information private plz!?

  3. Michael Says:

    I have to say that I really hate that..:/ I had a list of links to farms with the new chickens. It makes stuff a lot more difficult.

  4. Steve4310 Says:

    I have 54 neighbors. There are only a handful of people whom I don’t know, but they are friends-of-family, kids-of-friends, etc… I need references before I accept neighbors!

  5. farmergirl Says:

    i have 295 neighbors. too bad there’s a limit, i wanted to add more. i have always had a fake acct to play games though, i have over 1200 people on my FB. i’m not sure why people use their real accts to play these games.

  6. Lillianne Says:

    I have 25 neighbors. I only want as many as I need for the ribbon though.

  7. frank meek Says:

    so with zynga limiting the neighbors to 300 what am i going to do as i have almost 450 friends who all play the game and its nice to pick and choose whos farm i vist every day,seems like its going down hill as the game continues to have its problems,im maxed out at level 70 over 1 million xp,cant collect any collectables as i dont need any more gloves,emporere butterflies, lady bugs,green feathers,needelpoints,and half the time farms wont load and NOW THIS wow wonders why i continue to play and spend cash on a company that is too controlling. over a game…

  8. moi Says:

    I stopped adding neighbors at 35, because the more you have, the more useless you are. Who wants to add a neighbor when all their posts are gone in 5 seconds? Yet, they will take bonuses and prizes from you? Its an unbalanced relationship, no thanks. People with 300 neighbors are useless….period.

  9. Darrid Says:

    This is not the case for me. I can still access all of my non”official” neighbors.

  10. Rogue Robot Says:

    Totally agree “Moi”. I wish they would limit it to 100 neighbors.

  11. Janice901 Says:

    I started deleting neighbors that had more than 100 neighbors because their posts were gone in, would you believe 2 seconds? They never fertilized or sent gifts and yet they always seemed to grab any of my posts. I didn’t feel it was a neighborly exchange plus because they were getting all my posts it was depriving my good neighbors that actually worked with me. No one can do right by 300 neighbors and I think it becomes all about ego.

    I had one neighbor that posted 30 collections at one time and I got none of them plus later that same day posted another 25 collections. I don’t need neighbors like that.

  12. mohit tomer Says:

    i have more than 200 neighbors and don’t mind adding strangers… i really like good neighbors who communicate and share links… i have many of them….
    if u would like too add me as your friend here is my profile

  13. pafarmgirl Says:

    Am I the first person to successfully get a Neopolitan cow? It’s on my farm, I emailed a pic to farmgoddess because I am too computer challenged to know how to post it here….haha…I hope she posts it. I got the ice cream today at 7-11, and it appears that the website is up and running!!

  14. thelazzyboy Says:

    Well I can only accept 300 neighbors and that sucks they need to let us have more neighbors so I say sorry to my friends I can only accept 300

  15. deniise Says:

    There are news in the mistery gif like: flower bike, green pinwheel and pink pinwheel :)

  16. Eric Says:

    Anyone interested in trading rare foals? Just add hans.david13@yahoo.com and leave a message saying what horses do you have and what foals do you want.. Thanks!

  17. up2myeyeballs Says:

    I am with Moi and Janice. None of my good neighbors share or post unique items though, so I wish I could connect with a couple addicts that also use real $ at times. Months ago I tried using the forum here to find a few, that just landed me with people who use bots to take my stuff or never shared, gift, fert, etc. I deleted them after a week of nothings. Surely I gave them too much acess by even friend requesting some forum posts.

    Speak of that I STILL have on fantom neighbor that STILL will not remove from my FVN page!!! When I try to remove, I get a fert visit shortly after but they are still there. Anyone know how to get my fanthom friend deleted?

  18. giftbuyer Says:

    I have 33 neighbors and am completely happy however, several of my friends/neighbors seemed to want to compete for “most neighbors” award. A friend pointed out the lock icon on the publish window and now I occasionally customize my posts to rotate rare collectable finds and when I cash in coins, eggs etc so I can share among my neighbors. Part of the fun and allure of this game is the sharing/winning of awards.

  19. Trisha Says:

    I have 90 some neighbors…I do get the things they post and all of us have a ton of neighbors. I don’t know what you guys are complaining about. I have more trouble getting posts my mom puts up than I do posts my “forum neighbors” post. You just have to pay attention.

  20. WeirdJedi Says:

    I’m trying to get this through my head. They have limited the number of people who can receive an item in a post. You can only become neighbors with your Facebook friends. You can only send gifts and fertilize those who are your friends, even though the amount of gifts you send has gone up.

    The part I don’t understand is you cannot have people see your farm without being a neighbor? I don’t get it. Did someone complain that they saw something a non-friend had that they wanted? I just need a moment to think about this.

  21. secretive Says:

    Why can’t we only be able to just VIEW other farms, even if we can’t fertilize crops/feed chickens. It’s useless!! I want them to bring this possibility back!

  22. dannyboy Says:

    This is probably the prime reason Zynga has lost so many farmville players! It is a hassle to get stuff done on your farm! Before, it was as easy as pie — as a task should be on Facebook — to expand your storage, coop, or whatever… but now, if you don’t have enough neighbors, you have to pay with farmcash!

  23. Dee Tague Says:

    I have not been able to get into the ‘My Neighbor’ site for at least 5 months. I can’t add or delete anyone! I have neighbors that stopped playing a long time ago, but they still show on my neighbor bar on the farm & are at the same level they were at months ago… so I guess I’m screwed!

  24. Rachel Says:

    Most of my friends have abandoned their farms & I now have very little ACTIVE neighbours. I started farmville a long time after I started my FB account. I’m not about to go & start a new account & start farmville all over again. I still think it is a bad idea to add people you don’t know to your facebook account just for farmville purposes, even if you can restrict what they see.

    I really believe Zynga needs to allow you to add neighbours without having to add them as friends.

  25. Suzy Capri Says:

    I’m with you on that. Nobody can do right by having that many neighbors.
    I really don’t even like people to come to my farm and fertilize
    just another pop up I have to deal with.
    And as far as gifts go they are generally useless.
    At some point it’s useless to even sell them.
    Because you have so many coins you’ll never spend them.
    As for the people who want to add neighbors
    that they’re not friends on Facebook with
    if you’re not going to communicate with your neighbors
    maybe you should take up solitary lol

  26. Sandy Says:

    I have a question for people. I got a request about something called Farmville 2. Does anyone have any information about that. I haven’t clicked accept or ignore yet . Just wondering.

  27. HideNSeek Says:

    I have 42 neighbors but more than half now don’t play it no more=\

  28. Susan Says:

    #26 / Sandy: Big article on Farmville Fanatic says FarmVIlle 2 is a scam. YOu might want to check out the article.

  29. amber Says:

    eric i tried adding u, but could not find u on fb…. i really want a purple pony foal :(

  30. doug Says:

    Another reason I can’t wait to finish mastering all the crops and be done with this game.

    I bet it had something to do with their new agreement with facebook. I used to f&f several dozen “strangers” a day. Was super helpful to get eggs, cash, and collectibles.

    No way am I going to “friend” strangers. I guess you can apply “security” but who really trusts fb these days.

    The bummer is all of my real neighbors have let their farms die.

  31. dwuayne Says:

    What I do is create a friends group named Farmville and put all my fv neighbours in there. Then I go to the privacy settings and exclude that friends group from seeing the private information I do not want to show. This way you only do it once and when you add new friends you put them into the group.

  32. Cyd Says:

    “So you can always add people for the use of FarmVille neighbors and keep almost 99% of personal information private.”


  33. jeanette Says:

    I didn’t know you could feed and fertilize non-nabors.I do good to get on 5 of my nabors farm aday to do that task.

  34. The Freak! Says:

    anyone can add me as a neighbor. just search nicky l vaught and say that you wanna be a farmville friend

  35. Debbie Says:

    I have added neighbors with great success in the past, but yesterday I went to the farmville web page and picked up a few new neighbors again, It would seem all is well, but noooo!!! I logged into my facebook home page this morning and there on the very first post is a picture of a very naked new neighbor!! I am not a prude but that is not at all what I was looking for!! So do beware!!!

  36. Caroline Says:

    If anyone wants to add me, this is the link to my “Farmville facebook”. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000879821858 All I do is play FV on it, but I only have a handfull of friends. No worries about any sketchy photos lol since I don’t even have a profile picture…

  37. louannda Says:

    After getting rid of the grab bar people we have seen a big differnce in getting things. But still, if you get about 100 neighbors & I notice I can’t get anything from you anymore, I drop you. If you can’t gift to me every day, even every couple, come to my farm & all your stuff is gone, what good are you to me? At that point I am only good to you.

  38. alokbarso Says:

    be my farm neighbor please


  39. Cindy Pettit Says:

    I am always looking for neighbors! I am nowhere near the limit and can use all the help I can get. To those who have said that they don’t even like people visiting their farm…..don’t you know you get xp from fertilized crops and you can’t do that yourself?!! If they don’t visit, you get nothing. Also, visiting their farms gives you xp. I have 2 farms so here are the 2 links, I hope they work.

  50. Larry Says:

    If you wish to limit access to your personal information from your ONLY FarmVille friends/neighbors it’s really simple. You can make LISTS of friends, meaning you can designate a list such as Farmville and add those friends to this list. You can then go into the account settings for this list and limit what information they have access to. I have three lists: Friends & Family; Work; and Farmville. Each has different settings. Happy Farming!!!

  55. marquitoa Says:



  56. Rottiedog Says:

    I do disagree with having to accept a friend on Facebook before they can be a neighbor on Farmville. I have a nine year old who likes to play farmville but I won’t let him befriend just anybody on facebook – - I don’t think it’s safe – - even though I have fake information on his profile. I’m not technically saavy enough to know how to block information and make lists like Larry says so my kid is trying to level up with only six neighbors.

  57. leslie henry Says:

    I have strict privacy on viewing and posting to my wall. My fb friends I added just for farmville tell me they can’t post. When I go to my wall it is loaded with all these posts from these “friends”. When I hit the x by their names my only choice is to accept all feeds or none at all. Why won’t fb and farmville recognize that ppl have neighbors just for farmville and let them receive farmville only posts from some neighbor. Basically as I got a new friend for farmville I.put them in this group that limited what they could see on my wall. As their non farmville news feeds and posts started clogging up my wall I started hitting that x by each name but my only choice was to accept all feeds/posts or none at all. What am I doing wrong? I am not seeing seeing most of what they do in game stories. If they share a bonus w everyone I see that in farmville but if they visit my farm and try to send a post to me it won’t let them. What am I doing wrong. I want only farmville posts from these new neighbors and nothing else. Fb won’t let me go and delete individual. Items from my news feed. I have to accept everything from a person or nothing. I can clean out my wall but not my news feed. What am I doing wrong? I want to limit not only what these just for farmville friends can see on my wall but what they can post. I put them all in their own “farmville friends” group in fb but that doesn’t seem to be working.

  58. leslie henry Says:

    To everyone that says just create a special farmville friends group in fb and limit what that group sees. I did that but there is nothing to limit their posts I get from them on my wall or news feed. I don’t want their crappy posts just to get farmville posts about sharing a fuel bonus. Fb news feed gives me two choices accept all feeds from a person or block all feeds. Why can’t feeds/posts be categorized and certain ones are allowed and others not. I know how to protect my privacy from these farmville only fb friends but how do I keep all their non farmville junkfrom being posted on my wall/news feed?

    I am having a few issues with FarmVille at the moment.

    1) I have tried on numerous occasions to add some friends to my FarmVille neighbors list, But, while they tell me that I am already on their lists, they ARE NOT showing up on mine. Their names do show up but as ‘NEIGHBOR PENDING” Has anyone else had this problem?

    2) I keep getting a certain Valentine’s Day Tree. But, every time I refresh the page, it disappears.

    Can anyone help with either of those two problems, Please?

  118. Claudia Szuberla Says:

    Hi! Just read your post regarding the loss of being able to visit others farms. Unfortunately, this is not true. We have always been able to go to Add Neighbors on the Farmville tool bar. Click on this. A list of people who play and are your “friend” on Facebook are listed. If you click on their names you can then visit their farms and give them gifts and harvest their animals, trees and feed the chickens too! This has always been available. Additionally, I have always been able to give gifts to people if they are playing and put something up. Maybe you are unaware that on Farmville if you click on the “Free Gifts” on the tool bar you can still send gifts to all your neighbor and non-neighbor friends. Pass this on to all our Farmville friends they may want to know they still have access!
