Now that data moves fast and does so over on the ticker.For people that have a lot of friends this is very helpful, as it can be ignored over there on the sidebar, or you can hide it.I've tried this from How do I control what I see in my news feed?: Facebook has recently re-weighted the feed so posts from your facebook "friends" receive greater priority than posts from the Pages that you have liked.This has happened more often in the last few weeks.I tried hovering over the "liked" button on these pages and it does show that "show in news feed" is checked.Ticker will appear as you connect to more friends, subscriptions, and pages.” What does this mean?
This has led to a burst of confusion and consternation and yes, a lot of questions. No doubt Facebook has its reasons for exiling the Most Recent feeds to the sidebar, but no doubt those who make frequent use of it will be less than thrilled and let Facebook know all about it.
To hide the ticker when it’s in your chat sidebar, you have to hide the entire chat sidebar.
To do this, you simply click on the icon located at the bottom right of the chat sidebar that says “Hide Sidebar”.
Prior to the ticker, in your news feed you’d see, “so and so likes Technology for Moms”, or “so and so is now friends with Sarah”.
This would make actual status updates get buried for people who had a lot of friends that interact on Facebook.
