News Tickers – Not Just for News

A news ticker can be used for any kind of attention-grabbing headlines.  Just in a few moments these are uses I came up with (remember, headlines in the ticker are clickable!):

  • Ecommerce site –┬áDisplaying new or sale item.
  • Blog – Display newest posts
  • Events – Display upcoming events
  • Fundraising – Display current status and ways to donate
  • Restaurant – Display today’s specials
  • Recreation – Display current weather conditions

Tickers can also display data from other sites – if there is an RSS feed, it can be included in a ticker easily.
