Setting Up A Facebook Account Series
Part 3 of my Facebook Using Tutorial covers adding Applications and Game Applications such as Farmville. All work and no play makes one a dull girl!
How To Add Facebook Applications
You will need:
- To have previously created an account at facebook.com
- Basic info set up
- Privacy settings customized
Step 1: Log into Facebook & Applications Area
Once you log into your account, look in the sidebar for “Applications”. If you don’t see it in your list, you may need to click the more tag under Photos for it to appear. Once you found, click the Applications link.
On the new page, you can see any applications you already use, applications your friends use, as well as an applications directory link at the bottom. To see more popular apps from your friends, click “More” otherwise click the directory link.
Next you will see a page with featured apps, suggested apps, and more. Rather than just browsing through the apps randomly, consider using the search or the apps categories in the sidebar to narrow down your choices a bit.
If you have a personal Facebook account, you may want to look through the Friends & Family, Just For Fun, or other categories. For a business focused account, you may want to look through the Business applications.
First let’s find out how to add a Game. After you click on the “Games” link, you’ll see a variety of games.
Click “Allow” to go to the FarmVille page where you can set up game specific information.
Important! A word of warning concerning games and some other applications, the idea is to have fun and maybe profit in business. Applications can become obnoxious and you can lose “friends” if your game stats and such are posted too often. Make sure you edit your privacy info so that you make friends not alienate them.
