Figure 2-4: Playing FarmVille through FarmVille.com.
Despite the new location, you still need a Facebook account to play on
FarmVille.com, and you'll be prompted to log in with your Facebook account
when you visit the site.
So why play at FarmVille.com? Well, playing on the site gives you access to
“FarmVille.com Exclusive” gifts, which you can't send through the gift-giving
page on Facebook. For more on giving gifts, see Chapter 4.
Additionally, FarmVille.com allows you to control specific settings regarding
e-mail notifications sent to you by Zynga. Click the “Click here to update your
preferences” message on the FarmVille.com Home page to display a list of dif-
ferent notifications the game can send you via e-mail, as shown in Figure 2-5.
Select the radio button under the Yes column for the options you'd like to
activate and then click Save to confirm your settings.
