I've attached photos of me trying to ask for something of neighbors, I get the same for trying to send them gifts. I also added a screenshot of trying to add neighbors. I have the spinning cog wheel of death. I can't click on any of the tabs, the cog just keeps on spinning. I have approved Farmville to use my friends list as shown in the last picture. I have uninstalled the game and reinstallled 3 different times. I'm trying to just play and be able to add neighbors and request items like normal.
PS. I did have Farmville blocked for a period of time when I wasn't playing it.
