Light-bulbSnag bar fix for people who do not see game posts on Facebook news stream

Please_share
by Amy Wong - Nov 08, 2010 Star_s100,904 views

Many people are reporting that they no longer see Farmville and/or Frontierville game feeds on their Facebook news stream after Facebook changed the way they display the news stream for gamers vs non gamers. Basically, the change was to show game feeds only to gamers and less or none to non gamers. Unfortunatly, Facebook can't really tell if some are gamers or not (d'oh) and are showing less or none feeds to those people. Many gamers are saying they need to go to their "Games Stories" on the sidebar to see any game feeds.

We filed a bug with Facebook but seems like it's going to take a long time until they do something about it. So we found a work around to get the game feeds using a different method. But this isn't automatically switched, you will need to tick the option to use this method explicitly to update the toolbar. You should see this option on your toolbar preference page:

tick the option

Like written in red here, do NOT tick this if the feed is already showing up on your news stream. One way to tell if your feed isn't showing up is if you see the message below when you click on the Farmville feed and/or Frontierville feed pages:

switched feed

If you see this message, you should definitely tick the option on the toolbar preference. If you don't see that message and the toolbar is not working, it's a different issue so this option will NOT work.

Let us know if you have any questions but please don't just post messages like "the snag bar is not working" - instead tell us more explicitly what the problem is after trying out this method.

Part 2,
Things I forgot to say the first posting:
I also deleted the Zynga toolbar, I made sure there were not two sang bars installed. I am using firefox. and everything worked fine until 9/1/11 around noon. I dont know if any of this makes a difference I just figure the more info I give the better chance I have of someone knowing what I did .

Hi can anyone please help me, My poineer trail feeds, farmville, cafe' world, feeds are not showing on my wall. I have reloaded the toolbar, uninstalled and reinstalled the toolbar, uninstalled the games and then allowed permissions again. I have checked the edit buttons at bottom of top news, and checked the edits at bottom of drop box on most recent. I do not see anything that would not allow my game requests to show on my wall, I am sure it is something that was ticked by accident or who knows what I did. My children also play most of the same games on the same computer and there is NO Trouble with the snag bar working for their accounts, that is why I feel like it must be something that I did. Please Please help. I have so many unanswered requests and just do not have the time to go to each one of my friends pages and answer requests from there. Thanks in advance for any and all educated or not guesses or not guesses, lol.

My snag bar isn't working either as it should. In the toolbar preferences, my Pioneer Trail box is checked and when I click snag, its not snagging really anything. On my news feed, it shows all of the Pioneer Trail game posts from other friends but it just won't snag any of it that they post....please help! Can't figure out why it won't snag anything anymore..

Nothing Farmville is showing up on my news feed at all. I don't have anything blocked, and I can see posts on my friends wall and my own, but not on my news feed or under games. Anybody else having this problem? I asked my neighbors and they say everything is working fine. I have tried everything. Thanks!
