How to Disable Facebook Live Feed Ticker In Sidebar

Facebook has started implementing  several designs and features regularly these days, as we already know this is because of launch of Google+, New Social Network by Google. These changes includes redesign of news feed, auto list,  privacy settings, floating menu and chatbar, live feed ticker and subscriptions and many more in the way , today facebook will announce few more feature in F8 ( Its live right now) , Music and Videos on Facebook is on the way. Mark Just announced a new features “Facebook Timeline” ,”Facebook Reports”. I will update it after the show later .

As usual many users are annoyed with these type of  new changes in facebook without any notification ( i suggest facebook to learn from twitter for new changes) . Okay now lets see the ways to hide that  live feed ticker and disable the ticker bar.

With an extension like AdBlock, you can easily hide or remove the “Live Ticker”.

If  you are new to AdBlock extension , you can get it from the official repository for both Chrome and Firefox. Once installed, go to its settings page and click on ‘Customize’ tab. Under filters section, add these two filters:[id="pagelet_rhc_ticker"][id="pagelet_ticker"]

That will remove the ticker from your sidebar chat and from the homepage. Facebook keeps on changing things, so if the above filters doesn’t work for you, manually block it by selecting “block an ad on this page” option available in the AdBlock extension.

If you use only Chrome browser, you can hide the ticker and disable the floating bar with an extension called Unannoying Facebook.

Another way to hide the ticker is by installing the “Better Facebook” extension, available for Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera. Once you have it installed on your browser, click on the “Better Facebook! Options” button.

Enable “Advanced Options Mode” and then click on CSS. Paste the following CSS snippet to the area provided.

 /* Hide Facebook live ticker */ .ticker_stream { display:none !important; }

Save the settings and refresh page to see the changes.

Do note, filters or extensions won’t prevent your information from being displayed on your friends ticker. Those methods are only good for you. But still, you can take some measures to stop unwanted updates from popping up on your friends ticker by adjusting your privacy settings.

For instance, if you don’t want your friends to know a certain app you are using then just go to your account’s app settings page and change the particular app’s ’App activity privacy’ option to ‘Only Me’.
