One of my friend told me not to visit Facebook for 3days, if you wish to see a new Facebook every time. His statement was about the frequent changes happening in Facebook. Facebook is upgrading it’s look and functionality very fast with new features. But it may not happen that every feature will be popular and the users like that. Yes, I am talking about that Real time Sidebar Ticker, that not only confused me but also a lot of users.

    Strange question here but my wife is actually without the sidebar ticker (it is just not showing in her account, whatever browser she uses) and she would like to have it! I can’t find how to install the ticker. It must be something with the privacy settings? Who can help?
