Facebook is testing out a new feature called “happening now.” It’s a “live” version of the News Feed – and it sits right next to the normal News Feed.
That’s a lot of News Feed.
Maybe too much?
Foursquare product boss Alex Rainart, for one, thinks it’s kind of silly.
He just gently mocked Facebook in a tweet:
“Yo dawg, I heard you like newsfeeds so we put a newsfeed in your newsfeed.. Holy crap! What am I supposed to click here! “
The tweet refers to an old meme about Xzibit and his MTV show “Pimp My Ride.”
By the way: isn’t the Foursquare-Facebook rivalry fun?
