I wholeheartedly agree with this. I use my personal FB account for everything and I don't want it cluttered up with people that I don't know in RL. The Zynga friend method has been mentioned before in this thread, I think it would be a perfect thing for Summer Springs to emulate. Thank you for making such an absorbing game, Gaia developers. It can only improve.
I can see feeds from my gaia friends playing the game, but they aren't my neighbors. I'm a fairly private person, and I don't really like giving my fb info to people I don't know irl.
Why can't people who are my friends on gaia that play be added to my neighbors as well?
I like the idea too of course I dont know how many of my gaia friends actually play this game. You can make a restricted friends list, you get to set the level of info they see on your facebook and just add your gaiaonline buddies there.
