What is the best user experience with the autoupdatingauto-updating pages - for example, a list of songs. Currently I'm thinking about three good possible solutions:

  • "Full" update: when the new content appear at the top, as on Vk.com feed;
  • "Notification" update: when the user needs to click a special notification to load new items, as on Twitter;
  • "Replacing" update: when there are a fixed numbers of items and new items replaces old ones, as on StackExchange realtime questions.

What is pros and conses of this methods? Are there any useful user experience ideas for constantly, real-time updating content?
