Is Facebook Copying Google+?

Just 15 minutes back, we noticed a sudden change in Facebook profiles.

The differences which we noticed are:

  1. Images seems larger (As in Google+)
  2. And a ticker, which is showing all my friend’s & page’s live feeds in it.

As you have already seen in some of the websites, blogs, and RSS feeds, Ticker is the most acknowledged medium of getting real time information. Instead of showing all the live feeds of your friends in your home feed, Facebook has decided to gather all that in a ticker.

Check out the first look of the ticker right here:

Also, we are very happy about the way Facebook has decided to show a larger thumbnail of pics, which we use in Posts. We have already seen that with the rise of Google+ and now Facebook seems to follow the same path. It will also help businesses to grab some ‘Much needed’ attention of users.

Check out some of them:

So according to us, with increasing social media war between Google+ and Facebook, both key players are trying to bring something new every day. Both tickers and larger images options have given Facebook an extra edge over Google+ for some time. But users can expect some more exciting things to come from the kitty of these big daddies.
