Why can’t I see the Facebook news ticker?
Question by Osama Javaid /

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit on a Core i3 2100 with 4GB of RAM and a Nvidia video card. I can’t see the Facebook news ticker in my browsers. My friends have it on their Facebook. I am using the latest Firefox and Chrome.

Also, the Facebook chat box appears above the advertisements column on the left side of Facebook, while on my friends computers it appears on the right side.

How can I get it back to normal?

    Ticker only shows up for people with a certain level of account activity. If you don’t see ticker, it’s probably because you don’t use Facebook a lot, so there’s not enough content to make ticker useful to you.

      You might have installed some ad,script blocking addons that might be interfering with the loading of News ticker in Google Chrome.Try disabling those addons in Facebook or else add Facebook to whitelist in those addons.

    All you have to do is add more friends and create the new timeline.
    Your friends count should reach 100.

      News ticker will appear only if you have more friends and interact with them regularly.
