  Troubleshooting Facebook Friends Not Appearing in Candy Crush

Facebook Friends who are playing Candy Crush may not appear in your friend’s list for a number of reasons. Firstly, the game’s privacy settings may be preventing you from seeing them. Secondly, they may be playing a different version of the game, or they may have deleted their profile. Additionally, their Candy Crush profile may be associated with a different version of Facebook and their profile may not be visible in your version of the game.

To resolve this issue, firstly check your privacy settings and ensure that you are sharing your profile with friends. You can also try un-linking your Candy Crush account from the Facebook profile you are using and then re-linking it again. If that does not work, you may need to uninstall and reinstall the game, as well as your Facebook account. Lastly, if none of these solutions work, then you may need to contact the Candy Crush support team and see if they can help.

Personal Experience

Why can

As someone who has been using Facebook and playing Candy Crush for several years, I can attest to the fact that Facebook friends don’t show up in Candy Crush. This was incredibly frustrating for me as it meant that I couldn’t challenge my friends or compare scores. Instead, the only way to compare my scores to my friends was to do it manually.

It did not take long for me to discover that in order to view my friends’ scores within Candy Crush, I had to link my Facebook account to the game. Once I linked my account, my friends’ scores showed up within my friends list and I was able to compare scores and challenge them accordingly. It was a useful feature, so if you’re like me and want to challenge and compare scores against your Facebook friends, make sure you link your Facebook account to Candy Crush.

I also found that linking my account had other benefits besides being able to challenge my friends. I was able to receive additional rewards and access exclusive content by connecting my Facebook account with the game. This allowed me to progress further and made the gaming experience more enjoyable.

Final Thoughts

It seems that if you have an outdated version of the Candy Crush game, your Facebook friends may take longer to appear in the game, if they appear at all. For those experiencing these issues with the game, updating to the latest version of the game may help solve the issue. Additionally, some Candy Crush levels require friends to join a specific group or to send and receive lives from each other, so it may be necessary to re-connect with friends and request lives or join a group in order for their avatars to appear.
