Viewing the Ticker
The news feed isn’t the only place to find new information from your friends. At the top of the right column is something called the ticker, which is a scrolling list of what your friends are doing, updated in real time. This list includes more than just status updates; it also includes comments your friends make on other updates, photos uploaded, songs listened to on Spotify and other music services, and more. Just about anything Facebook knows about, however unimportant, is scrolled here.
- To view older posts, mouse over the ticker to display the scrollbar, and then drag the scrollbar down.
- To display the full post, along with comments and likes, click the item in the ticker.
