Facebook Game Tips: How to make News Feeds more visible to friends
But what if you have all the Facebook friends you could ever ask for, and still no one lends you a hand when you ask for more bricks, permits or Energy? Is every last one of your Facebook friends a jerk? It's a possibility, but highly unlikely.
What is more than likely the case is that your News Feed posts aren't as visible to your friends as they could be. So here are three ways to improve the visibility of your Facebook game News Feed posts:
Come Out From HidingOn the Facebook home page, hover over the words "News Feed" on the left sidebar and click on the pencil icon. Once you click that, a list of names and apps will likely appear. To remove the app in question from hiding, press the gray "X" next to it. Once you're done making changes, be sure to click "Save". If the game in question isn't on this list, that's a good thing.
Open the FloodgatesFirst, you should check your general app settings allow friends to see posts made from the Facebook games you play. In the upper right corner of the Facebook home page, click the little downward-facing arrow and click "Privacy Settings." Make sure that your default setting is set to either "Friends", or you can make a custom list of people can see your posts made from games.
Check the Plumbing (Or Hit the Restart Button)After clicking "Done", you'll be back in control of the main Privacy Settings page. So, click on "Edit Settings" next to the words "Apps and Websites." Then, click the "Edit Settings" button next to the words "Apps you use." Look for the game you're having trouble with, and click on the word "Edit" to the right of it. Where it reads "App activity privacy," make sure that it's set to "Friends".
If these three methods don't result in more help from your friends (or there was nothing to change), we're sorry, but your Facebook friends are a bunch of jerks.
