    I have the exact same problem, lots of friends with lots of activity. Had the ticker for a few days & has been gone since.

    Yes, same problem here too (with over 2000 friends!). My wife has the same issue with over 300.

    Was there for a few days when it first rolled out then *poof* it was gone.

    It is, in fact, THE core functionality that made Facebook so cool years ago. Very irritating that we can’t get it, and I’ve tried many things (different browsers/computers/operating systems) and still no luck. Sent a bug notification to FB but of course no response.

    Would love to find a solution…

    I think software which patronizes the user should be FORBIDDEN BY LAW (exept it’s software for children).

    There is no reasoning whatsover behind the idea that “i dont need the ticker”.

    Mine just disappeared about a month ago. I have hundreds of friends and pages that I like. It flowed pretty quickly. I don’t understand this at all, but I miss it. :(

    Hey all,

    There is a small icon (open bracket and arrow) type of thing on top of the adds/notifications area in the top right hand corner of your home page. It look the same as the one you use to hide/show the chat bar. If you can’t find, you may want to increase the resolution of your screen, so the entire FB page becomes tiny and there is a lot of room on both sides of the home page.

    You can click and click again on that icon to make the ticker hide or show. I finally found it and I am able to get the ticker events back. I was so relieved to find it back. Life became suddenly boring(or peaceful?) without it. Hope this helps anyone who is looking to enable the ticker.

    Thank you. Your instructions worked. I have searched several websites via Google and your suggestion is the only one that worked and made sense.

    I don’t want the ticker, I want my friends chat sidebar back. There’s no icons to bring it back. Anybody know how? I’m on an ipad but it’s showing up even if I use a browser. Very frustrating!!
