When it comes to playing FarmVille, there is a good reason that you want to have tons of neighbors on your list. The good thing is that you don't have to spend a lot of time searching for them either, you can simply join some of the fan pages and add your name on any neighbor lists they have going around. Once you put in even a tiny bit of effort when it comes to adding neighbors, you will easily find that your neighbor list will explode. But what do you do when you have all of those neighbors? Here are three tips to help you use your FarmVille neighbors to your advantage:
1. Postings: When it comes to wall postings, most people will post anything from FarmVille. This can actually be a good thing though and here is why: if you're on top of your wall postings, you'll be able to catch things that you want, tons of extra money, and plenty of great extras for your farm. For example, you can gain animals that you can't buy in the market, you can gain extra specialty items during special events, and you can even get some great collectibles on a constant basis. For this reason, it is a great thing to have plenty of neighbors that will always be posting things from FarmVille on their walls for you to snatch up.
2. Visiting: This is where the main bulk of your neighbor needs lies – in visiting them. When you visit your neighbors, you gain several things. The first is coins, as you get offered to do something for your friends when you visit them (although you can only do this once a day). You will gain anywhere from 5-20 coins for this job, as well as extra coins for doing other things on their farm such as feeding chickens. The next thing is experience points. Again, you'll gain experience for doing a job for them, but you'll also gain it for fertilizing their crops and feeding their chickens. While it's not much, it can really add up quickly and get you some great experience points for free. You can also find collectible items as you visit other neighbors and do things for them. Some collectibles can only be found by visiting friends and neighbors so you want to make sure that you do this as often as you can.
3. Co-ops: This is a new area to FarmVille but offers so much that it's hard to say no to it. Your friends will open up these special jobs that you can sign up to help them with. If you help and they complete the job, then you will get a great bonus from it as well. Of course, you can also sign up and create a job that your friends can help with and you'll get an even bigger bonus at the end if everything goes as planned.
While these are the three main reasons that you'll want friends, gifts are another great aspect to them that you don't want to miss out on either. No matter what reason you feel is the biggest, you want to make sure that you have the most neighbors possible when it comes to FarmVille because you really never know how far they can get you.
