Facebook Turns More Social With Ticker

Today in San Francisco is the f8 Developers Conference, (My Invite must have been lost in the post Mark!) anyway we are expecting some interesting changes to the Facebook user experience, we have already seen some changes taking place over the past couple of weeks and the site looks and feels a lot sleeker, which is a good thing.

But today we will “Live Ticker” introduced, it shows what your friends are saying right now, it will also show what they are doing, listening to and watching, but is it enough, some user don’t think so and it seems they are ready for more!

According to the Facebook engineer Mark Tokelowitz;

When you visit Facebook, you should see the things you’re most interested in, like status updates from your family and closest friends. Last week, we announced improvements to Friend Lists and a new Subscribe button to help you see more of what you care about, and less of what you don’t.

There’s more;

But it’s not just the people you hear from that make your News Feed interesting. It also matters how much you visit Facebook. If you haven’t returned in a week, you may want to see a summary of top stories first. If you’ve already visited several times that day, you probably care more about recent news. Starting today, it will be easier to keep up with the people in your life no matter how frequently or infrequently you’re on Facebook.
