I have to admit that I'm not playing games on social networking sites like Facebook or Google Plus. To be honest, I'm annoyed by status messages that contain gift, bonus or game information. Thankfully though the networks have improved filtering so that those information have been reduced to a minimum in recent time. Still, I have lots of friends on Facebook who play games there. Whenever I check it appears to be a new game, which I usually find out by receiving gifts or invitations to aid the player.

Friendly Gaming Simplifier is a free extension for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers that make gifting and receiving gifts and bonuses a lot easier. The add-on supports many different games on Facebook, including the immensely popular Farmville, Mafia Wars, Texas Holdem Poker and City of Wonder and Frontierville games. You can access the full list of supported games on the developer website.

Here is how it works. You install the extension for your browser from the developer website. The extensions do not seem to be available on the official add-on repositories, which means that caution is suggested when installing them in the browser.

The extension adds a single button to the browser toolbar. A click on the button and the selection of Open Giftlist loads the main interface in a new tab.

You see the list of available games first. Here you select the games that you play or want to play. For each game you can select specific actions, like auto like or send actions, notifications when bonuses are available or being listed on neighbors searches.

You can then use links at the top to access the pending bonuses and bonuses with action required, the collected bonuses and pending and collected gifts. Other options included sending free gifts to friends or clearing the bonuses history.

One of the effective actions of the extension is the ability to get all bonuses or gifts at once instead of individually.

Facebook users who like to play a game or two on the social networking site might want to try Friendly Gaming Simplifier to speed up receiving gifts and bonuses in the games that they play.

    I agree with you, Sharon. There are still a lot of bonus scrubbers and bonus collectors on FB but they have to disable FGS? All because of the “Puzzled Hearts” guy!! Grrrrrrr I removed and blocked ALL that guy’s games!

    I just don’t understand what the people that had FGS removed think the difference between that and Auto Bonus Collector is?? They are the same except FGS is faster. Haters!!!!!

    This is not the dev’s page… Contact them via facebook or their forum or contact info is on the extension page and they will get back to you! I have had issues and I just uninstalled and an re-installed so hopefully that helps for you or maybe u just have to update…. If the dev’s page is down you can try googling the extension.. for some reason my browser blocks the site sometimes.. Or maybe there is an update.. The person who runs this whole app I believe does it by himself.. Figure out a solution.. The person who wrote this article is NOT the developer of the app/extension! Good luck though hopefully this helped for you!

    Mine stopped working and when I went to check for updates or see what the problem was, it keeps telling me that there was a error. What has happened to my fgs?

    Adventure World. Thanks for putting it on FGS but there is a problem. Unable to receive any gifts sent hoping you can fix that for us.

    Thanks in advance.

    You could also use the wonderful userscript called FBPurity.
    Since installing it I have had a hard time using the regular Facebook.
