Facebook gets “Happening Now”

Facebook said on Friday it was testing a function, “Happening Now” (“what happens now”), showing real-time activity of his “friends” on social network, how micro-blogging Twitter.
This function is tested with “less than 1%” of the 600 million users of Facebook, said the first social network in the world.
“We are currently testing this feature in place of news, it gives people the opportunity to see what their friends like to comment or + +, when this happens,” the company said in an email to California AFP.
“In the coming weeks we will learn more about this test, improve and possibly expand it to more people,” he adds.
This function, which takes the form of a column next to the current place, is seen by some observers as a potential threat to the micro-blogging site Twitter, which allows its users to post messages of 140 characters up on what they do, think, see, and to include links to documents, photos or videos.
