Facebook is testing a new Twitter-like real-time feature called “Happening Now” on certain users news feeds, according to The Next Web. The feature displays at-a-glance a list of what their friends are sharing, who they are adding as friends and displaying check-in notifications.
“We are currently testing a feature within News Feed that gives people the ability to see what their friends are commenting on and “liking”, as these actions are being taken on Facebook.
This test includes a small percentage of Facebook users, just a fraction of a percent. In the coming weeks, as we learn more from this test, we’ll keep making improvements and may expand it to more people.”
