No Longer Tickered Out (Limerick)

Regular readers know that Facebook’s News Ticker has been driving me mad! It’s also driven me to write three anti-Facebook limericks.

If you share my problem, or if you simply feel sorry for me, you’ll be pleased to know I’ve uncovered a solution: Google Chrome has an extension that makes Facebook’s annoying Ticker vanish.

I’ve installed it and the extension works great. No more News Ticker. Yippee!

Time to celebrate with a limerick:

    I guess Google is good for something.

  3. I just learned something! FB scares the pants of me.

    Madeline, would you resend your poem for Sunday? I misfiled it.

    Thank you, Madeline ~~ It is good that you have found a solution. :) I hate Google but can’t hardly live without them. Google Chrome, no way.
    I haven’t looked at my FaceBook page yet since the change. I know I won’t like the ticker for sure.

    I’m busy finishing up my little ditty on “Amuse” and came here to check on my link to you. It was a fun word. Thank you.

    Alas, I know nothing of Face Book or its ticker, but reading through your posts it’s obviously a problem of inordinate size. I cant help feeling sorry for you. I realised how serious it was when it appeared that chablis was no help! Glad you have found the solution. I’m not surprised Chrome is one of my two most favoured browsers.
