Another recent “feature” implemented by Facebook has been met with much disdain and complaint by the user community. There is a new ticker appearing in the right column of Facebook user accounts. Not only is it annoying, but many people don’t want their every comment, like, update, etc. broadcast via the ticker.
So far, the only remedy we have located is to use the Ad Block extension for Firefox and Chrome. Here are more detailed instructions:
1) Download the Add On “AdBlock Plus” Firefox Chrome
2) After AdBlock Plus is installed go into it’s preferences and click “Add Filter”.
3) To remove the new “Ticker” paste in: apps.facebook.com##DIV[class=”homeFixedTicker”]
4) To remove the new “App Ticker” also add in: apps.facebook.com##DIV[class=”fixedAux”]
We have not personally verified this work around, but several users are reporting success with it. Good Luck!
