Hey Ticker Haters, Facebook's Testing A Notification Feed

Ticker haters, rejoice: Facebook appears to be testing a new layout for its homepage, where notifications appear in a column running down the left-hand side.

On screens displaying a notification feed, no ticker appears in the right-hand column.

Obviously, the change doesn’t actually get rid of the ticker, but rather rebrands and repositions it.

It’s possible that Facebook users might feel just as upset over this change as the original launch of the ticker, even though renaming it “notifications” clarifies the purpose of the feature.
