Forums are a great resource for finding news information, tips and advice, reporting issues with a game, and even finding new friends for social networking games from Zynga. This guide will help you find out where these forums are and what to do once there.

It isn’t always easy to find information on the game you want to play, or perhaps find out if others are experiencing technical difficulties too, or perhaps find new friends to join you in your takeover of the mafia, be a FarmVille neighbor, etc. That is where the Zynga forums come in handy. They have created forums for their users to talk about their favorite games and share advice in the games too.
The forums for Zynga games have a Rules of Conduct page which you should check out before you sign-up to become a member of the forum and start posting. Basically, as long as you follow good etiquette and respect towards others, you will be fine. You know, no spamming, flaming, trolling, advertising, don’t post personal information about yourself or others, etc.
The forums have topics that are available for you to post your questions, discussions, or help questions in. Always post your response in the proper subject area.
For example, the FarmVille forum has the following topics: Rules, Updates Announcements and FAQ’s, User Support, Discussions, Feedback and Suggestions, Bugs & Bug Reporting, FarmVille Landscaping, and Finding Neighbors. That means, if you are looking to find new FarmVille neighbors, you could easily find some new FarmVille friends that are active and also want new neighbors. If you have a bug to report, or see if others are having the same issue, you can post in that section – that is often how they are alerted to those big issues that they then turn off withering and puppies running away.
Another good idea to check out after the forum for the game you play, is to frequently visit the game’s Facebook page. The developers and fans often post on this page throughout the day for bug issues, friend requests, and news information about the game.
