Facebook Rolling Out Live Feed Ticker [allfacebook.com]
While we haven’t confirmed whether or not the move is permanent, Facebook appears to be in the process of rolling out a live feed ticker to the homepage of all users. What’s most significant is how this could impact the platform as we’re expecting this to become a communication channel for all applications.

The live ticker is a way of giving users access to real-time information while separating the main feed, the stories of which are now called “Highlights”. It’s an interesting format, however it’s slightly distracting as the real-time ticker follows you as you scroll down the page. Those users who enjoyed the real-time feed as their primary feed will be disappointed. While the new feed is hard to adjust to, the “Ticker” is an interesting feature with an interesting interface as well. As you scroll over various stories, they pop-over the main feed, making commenting possible.

The new tool is interesting and I hope it will not spoil the idea of Social Media Network. Still I am happy and excited to see this innovation by Facebook.
