Early today we posted that , the Facebook launched a major profile redesign .One of the most important changes is Ticker.What is ticker? What types of stories appears in ticker ? Can I close ,hide or move ticker ? We have answered all these questions and more in this post .So let’s control our Ticker .
What is Ticker?
Ticker, on the right-hand side of your account, lets you see all your friends’ activity in real-time. When you hover over an item on ticker, you can see the full story and join the conversation as it happens. Ticker updates itself as as stories happen. This gives you a more complete picture of what your friends are doing, right now
What types of stories appears in Ticker ?
Ticker includes live stories—things like status updates, friendships, photos, videos, links, likes and comments. You can see this activity elsewhere on Facebook. Ticker just lets you see it as it happens.
Can I close ,hide or move Ticker ?
You can’t close ticker, but you can make it smaller by moving the horizontal bar between ticker and chat. Slide the bar up to hide ticker and make your chat list longer. Pull the bar down to show more of the ticker and hide chat.
Can I control what I see in my view of Ticker?
Hide a story you see in ticker:
- Click a story you see in ticker
- Click the menu in the top right
- Choose “Hide story”
Also, the hide and unsubscribe settings you use to control what you see in your News Feed will impact what shows in ticker. For example, if you hide someone from your News Feed entirely by unsubscribing from them, they won’t show up in ticker. This includes people you’ve already hidden. You might choose to only see “Important Only” or “Most Updates” from someone in your News Feed, but don’t want to unsubscribe from them entirely. In this case, ticker will show more from them than your News Feed.
What is the difference between the Ticker that shows when I use games and apps and ticker on my home page and profile?
This is a basic guide for how to control Ticker in the new Facebook Design.
