After the changes to gaming announced at last night's Facebook event, some related changes have been implemented in most of Zynga's games. To follow the announcements made last night by the new Games team, the requests sidebar will soon no longer include game requests on your Facebook homepage.
Requests will now be accessed either through your game bookmarks on the left-hand side of your home screen or a link that will appear titled "You Have Game Requests" (pictured above)when you have requests from any of the games you play, according to a post on the Facebook blog. Following the pop-up link will take you to the new "Games" page, where you can accept or reject requests like normal.
After clicking on that bookmark, just click on what looks like a piece of mail on the top right corner of your game screen and the Zynga Message Center will appear for that particular Zynga game. In this example above is the message center for Cafe World.
For Zynga games that don't include the Message Center, like in FrontierVille (pictured above), you'll simply be redirected to the game's gift page. Also, you can still see all of your game requests by typing in this URL into your browser: http://www.facebook.com/reqs.php
All in all, instead of finding your game requests on the right of the screen, they'll appear on the left side within a counter next to each of your bookmarks. Just click on the "You Have Game Requests" message that will appear on your Facebook homepage when you have requests and you're good to go.
However, it seems as if not every change has been implemented just yet. Game requests still appear on the right-hand side of the screen while at the same time popping up in the new "Game Requests" message. Hopefully, this will change soon and everything will be finally streamlined.
