Light-bulbLink Exchanges - How to construct your link

Please_share
by Amy Wong - Jan 03, 2011 Star_s69,201 views

We have many link exchange forums on our site and I wanted to write a more detailed instructions on how to construct a link, how to help other people, and how to update your link. (Please note that this method only works for games that allow non-friends to help)

Currently, we support the following games:

  1. Empires and Allies
  2. CityVille
  3. CastleVille
  4. Hidden Chronicles
  5. Monster World
  6. Mafia Wars 2
  7. RavenSkye City
  8. RavenWood Fair

1. Get your exchange link for manual link exchange

The first step is to go inside the game, and get the Facebook "Share" popup that asks your friends to help you with the item you need.  For example, in Cityvillle, there was a Winter Wonderland quest that made you ask for materials like Pinecones, Skates, and Holiday Lights from friends.

Clicking on the "Ask your Friends!" should bring up a Facebook share dialogue box.

Please note that most of the time the links that you can exchange are the ones you post on your wall like above,  and the ones you need to request to individual friends normally cannot be exchanged.

Once you "Publish" it, the post should appear on your Profile page like this:

This is similar to trading items on Farmville, but basically, all you need is that link that your friend will click, in the case above, it's "Send Holiday Lights." You can right click (or Ctr+click for Mac) on the link and choose "Copy Link Location" (the wordings might be different across browsers) to copy the link. That's it, you got your exchange link so others can click and help!

2. Paste the link to in the Exchange Forum

Now go to the link exchange forum and paste the link from above to the form.

Now that you appear on the gift exchange, go ahead and help bunch of other people on the list! We show how many each person has "received help" and "helped others" so the more people you help, there is probably more chance for getting help too. You can see who helped you on the side bar under "Your Gifts Stat" too so you can thank them by helping them back if they have gift links. If you get the "Sorry" message, the person probably got enough help. Well at least you tried!

3. Make sure you update your link (only for games that do not use the new link exchange system)

Once you collected the items you need, make sure you update with another link or delete it so people don't unnecessarily help you. Just enter a new link into the same form and click "post to wall" to update, or click "remove" to remove yourself from the list.

Hope this was helpful! Again, please remember that most of the games do not allow people who are not on your Facebook friend's list to help each other. And even if they do allow non-friends to help, it could change anytime so help each other like crazy until it lasts! Also, please let us know if you find any other game that lets non-friends to help each other with links so we can have a new exchange thread.

@Janel Freeman - At the time this thread was created, FarmVille 2 didn't exist. That is the only reason it is not listed above. Just go to our FarmVille 2 board and you will see the tab for the Link Exchange there.

I did not see my game listed above. Does that mean you do not support Farmville 2? If so, why do I have the link exchange tab and I can click on rewards which post to my game? I just can't figure out how to get my posts to show up on link exchange for other's to click on... Is there something I am missing?
Thank you!!!

OK, thx! But, you should really check out Monster World. It's pretty cool. ;-)

@Ava Humphrey - I don't play Monster World, so I can't help you specifics. The only thing I can tell you is that some items can be posted to your Timeline and some items must be sent to your friends as a Gift Request. And only items posted to your Timeline can then be converted into a Link Exchange link.

Alan thanks for your patience. I feel like I'm missing something. I don't understand why I cannot create links and post requests for various Monster World plants like I've seen so many others do. Any other suggestions?

@Ava Humphrey - If you have Gamers Unite! posts set to "Only Me," then all that means is that anything GU! related you post to your Timeline can only be seen by you. Your friends won't be able to see them. It will not affect what you post to our Link Exchange, nor will it affect our Link Exchange being able to view your Timeline.

I wasn't sure if maybe I was too restrictive when I signed up with GU. On FB, I chose the "only me" option to view GU posts. Does that need to change? If so, can you please give me the steps? I'm kind of a FB rookie.

@Ava Humphrey - Not all items in a game can be shared in our Link Exchanges. If a game determines that an item can only be received by sending a Gift Request to your Facebook Friends, then that is all you can do. Those items cannot be shared via our Link Exchange.

When I go into my Monster World game, I don't she the Facebook Share when I click on "Ask Your Friends for Help". It only brings up my Facebook friends that aren't playing the game. What should I do?

@San White - These instructions are only for requests that you can post to your Timeline. Items that you have to send a gift request for are handled through Facebook's App Center Requests page and, as such, cannot be added to our Link Exchange.

When I ask a friend for a gift it does NOT publish to me page therefore there is no link to copy? What's up with that? What a I doing wrong?

@Bradley Hooper - Do we even have a Link Exchange for Marvel: Avengers Alliance?

How can I do this for Marvel: Avengers Alliance?

@Heather Hyde Sieh - Exactly the same was as described in the original post.
