FrontierVille receives CityVille-like icons for visiting neighbors

In a strange hot fix update to FrontierVille last night, Zynga introduced icons that appear over visiting neighbors' heads. Just like in CityVille, when a visitor appears on your farm a small icon will hover above their heads featuring their Facebook profile photo. While in CityVille this is done purely because players do not have avatars, its use in FrontierVille has a different purpose.

Because of all the junk, tress and debris lying around on most players' homesteads (i.e. mine), visiting friends were sometimes impossible to find for most pioneers. With a fancy icon floating above your friends' heads--and everything else--it's now far easier to just click on the icon and accept the help.

Not to mention it lets you know exactly who visited your property, which allows you to easily return the favor to the right player. I don't know about you, but I haven't memorized the appearance of my friends' avatars. If you have, maybe it's time for a break?
