Facebook tests Twitter like real-time update feature

Facebook on Friday said that it’s working on a Twitter-like feature that alerts a Facebook user in real time to what his/her friends are up to on the social network.

Facebook’s Twitter like feature is reportedly called "Happening Now" and is already been open to a section of Facebook’s more than 600 million members.

"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," said the California company in an email reply to an AFP inquiry.

Facebook plans to keep making improvements and may expand it to more people, in coming weeks. --------
