Possible Updates to Facebook – Ticker & stuck Header

Dear Facebook, I just saw what you are planning to do, updating UI and the likes.

A ticker on the right side, might turn out to be a good thing, but in my case it showed the same person Online 3 successive times.

Also fixing the top so that it remains there, like Google does is a good idea, but the notifications need to be scrollable for it to make sense. I had 10 notifications, and I couldn’t see beyond 8 notifications :\

Well I wish you luck. But before adding new stuff, please think to make chat more likeable.
I have by started using a desktop client Digsby for chat, which I thought I would never do!
I cant stand to see my browser readjusting every time I need to see if someone is available or not!

I don’t have a snapshot of it right now, for as soon as I thought of refreshing the page and taking a shot, the changes were revoked.
I will try to be faster the next time!

FaceBook wants your Unborn Child

I saw an update by Faking News:

Facebook now allows you to add your “unborn child” as a family:

I didn’t believe it, for obvious reasons as per the title of the Page!

But they gave a TechCrunch link, there had to be some sense in the news.

And IT IS true.

See for yourself!!

facebook adds a family member - expected child

Is this really a new Customer Acquisition Strategy, or there is a rationale behind it?

FaceBook – old posts not loading

A bug or maybe Facebook updated/upgraded its database but didn’t upload the old posts back into the system!

FB No More Posts to Show

Something to look into Mark Zuckerberg and team!!

I know sometimes Facebook makes some changes to policy & thus settings are affected, but no this isn’t the case. At least when I tried the ‘Edit Options’ to see if only particular type of posts were to be visible, ‘All of your friends and pages’ is selected. So it should show them all, but it ain’t!

a Friend is Online – a new feature by FaceBook

Facebook has added a new – GMail-ish and/or Orkut-esque – feature to itself.

Rahul is Online - FaceBook's new feature

When you go visit a friend’s profile, now you can see right next to the name if they are online or not! See that green icon-thingy next to ‘Rahul Sharma‘, that’s declaring he’s online (he’s an AWEsome guy by the way)!

POINT TO BE NOTED: You need to be online to see the if the other person is online or not, or the green icon-thingy doesn’t appear. Quite basic/obvious thing, but worth pointing out anyways!! 🙂

P.S. It’s an empty circle if the person is OffLine!

FaceBook's new - Tagging in Comment

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
You can now link to a person directly even in your comments by use of @ in facebook.
One awesome update I say, much required & appreciated one!

FaceBook just got better 🙂

UPDATE : the feature doesn’t work anymore as of 2300hrs IST:(
I guess it was only out for testing purposes!!
Hope they roll a full-fledged version soon though!!

UPDATE: Tagging in a Comment is back up on March 16, 2011; and moreover they have done away with the blue button for posting comments, you just need to press enter! But as allFacebook has also pointed, it might just be a test rollout! People like me who like to be verbose about thoughts and break them up in paragraphs are going to have a tough time adjusting!
