Facebook has annouced the new Subscribe Button which helps you stay connected to people who you know but are not friends with.
It does happen that often you want to stay connected with individuals, public figures, celebs, journalists and stay up to date. Not all of them have a Page, and prefer communicating via their personal profiles. So, how do you connect with them? Facebook answered this with the new “susbcribe button” which you can see on the top right side.
Here’s some more information by Facebook:
Only people who allow subscribers will have a Subscribe button on their profile. If you don’t see the button, you can’t subscribe.
After you allow subscribers, a Subscribe button will show up on your profile. Your public updates will appear in people’s News Feeds once they click this button.
Subscribers can see only the things you share publicly. They can also choose how many and what types of these public updates they get.
As more and more people enable this button, more public data will be avaulable on Facebook, something which was missing all this time.
