fb says that the all new ticker will allow users to connect with their friends in real-time. The Ticker will work a little differently that your News Feed. Unlink just seeing updates that appear in your news feed the Ticker will help you connect and show your your friends updates in real-time. This is what Facebook says about the new Ticker."Ticker shows you the same stuff you were already seeing on Facebook, but it brings your conversations to life by displaying updates instantaneously. Now when a friend comments, asks a question or shares something like a check in, you'll be able to join the conversation right away. Click on anything in ticker to see the full story and chime in – without losing your place."
