Time For The Weekly Facebook Changes
Starting on Thursday, Facebook will unveil a real-time stream of what users are watching and listening to online.
The social network will introduce its new “ticker” stream alongside partnerships with major media companies at its f8 conference in San Francisco.
Founder Mark Zuckerberg will unveil this update as well as adding some changes to the “Like” feature allowing developers to create their own verbs such as “Want”, “Desire” or “Need”.
Facebook’s 750 million users will be able to automatically share activity such as viewing, listening and reading in the live “ticker” stream, once they have opted in to the feature. The new stream will be separate from the existing Facebook news feed, although popular items – such as the most frequently played songs among friends – will appear in the column.
