Twitter went abuzz about Facebook’s latest update, Ticker. A side-bar addition, the Ticker would be a user’s window to the recent activities of their Facebook contacts on Facebook. But, before you rush to your Facebook page to check the same, it would interest you to know that Facebook deactivated it, almost as soon as it went up, for reasons best known to them.

According to a report on, Facebook may have wanted to make some fixes here and there, and re-launch it again. There hasn’t been an official word from Facebook either on the first launch of the Ticker, or on the sudden removal of the feature. All we could hope is that Facebook makes all the required changes, and brings back the Ticker. 

Do let us know if you managed to catch a glimpse of the Ticker before it vanished in the comments section below.
