30 Second Tips - Hide Facebook Ticker

This is the 8th post in a series called 30 Second Tips. My goal is to show you how to do some neat stuff in 30 seconds or less!

In November 2011 Facebook introduced a new feature called Ticker. The idea behind Ticker is that it allows you to see everything that your friends are up to in real time. I have heard lots of people complain that they don't like Ticker. In today's post I am going to show you how to hide Ticker.

Step one is to click the Hide Sidebar button.

Step two is to click the Hide Ticker button.

There is no step three! It's that easy! If you want to access the chat window just press the Chat button in the lower right corner and to hide the sidebar/ticker again just press the Hide Sidebar button.
