Facebook Has Removed The Home Page Ticker

I just noticed that Facebook removed the home page ticker but some of subscribers of mine are telling that it is still visible on their home page. I just figured out that many others are also experiencing the same as many stories are appearing on Twitter (check latest ones here and here) about the vanished Facebook Ticker. Some are telling it would be back soon like Randy Hamilton. Some are telling that Ticker is back again etc. etc. But it is still not visible on my Facebook home page.

What is a Facebook Ticker?

Facebook Ticker shows you the things  in real time.

Features of Facebook Ticker:

  • It keeps up with the latest news as it happens
  • You can listen to music with your friends
  • You can hover (or click) over a story to join the conversation

Ticker shows live happening stories like status updates, friendships, photos, videos, links, likes and comments. This activity is visible elsewhere on Facebook but Ticker let you see this as soon as it happens.
